Your chance to win
For the first time, Barry Sheene’s family have agreed to open up their personal archive to give an unprecedented insight into the two-times 500cc world champion. Through more than 120 previously unpublished personal photographs, Times journalist and award-winning author Rick Broadbent tells the story of a remarkable sports star. Barry’s son Freddie Sheene provides the foreword.
Published to mark the 40th anniversary of his second World Championship win, the book provides a unique pictorial account of a life lived at full throttle and is an intensely personal look at a racer, legend, husband and father. Published by Bloomsbury Sport, it is available from all good bookshops and costs just £20.
Our sister title Classic Racer magazine has 10 copies of this book, each signed by Freddie Sheene, to give away. Visit www.classicracer.com/category/competitions/
