YEAR OF THE BAR

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

It may not seem like 40 years since Barry Sheene’s smil­ing face was beamed to nearly ev­ery house in the UK, but it was. The siz­zling sum­mer of 1976 saw the crafty cock­ney take on the world’s best 500 GP rid­ers... and win! In this spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion of a bril­liant racer and a bril­liant man, we talk to the peo­ple who were there at the time to get unique in­sight into that spe­cial year. We also take a look at the bike that took him to the ti­tle and talk to his son Fred­die. And while Barry may be gone, his mem­ory and his legacy live on.
