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.clas­s­i­­e­gory/com­pe­ti­tions/
