Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS -

The leg­endary Barry Sheene will be com­mem­o­rated and re­mem­bered at the Cas­tle Combe Grand Na­tional dur­ing 2019. The event – the high­light of the year for the Wilt­shire cir­cuit – takes place over the week­end of Satur­day, Au­gust 31, and Sun­day, Septem­ber 1, 2019. Barry was best known for win­ning the 1976 and 1977 500cc World Cham­pi­onships but one of his early vic­to­ries was at Cas­tle Combe aboard his Bul­taco back in 1969. With the 50th an­niver­sary of this event loom­ing, plans have been made to cel­e­brate this mile­stone with dis­plays and parades ex­clu­sively to do with Barry and his bikes over the years. own Steve Par­rish – Barry’s best mate – is hop­ing to re­turn to Cas­tle Combe af­ter be­ing a guest of hon­our at 2018’s pres­ti­gious event. Also, var­i­ous mem­bers of Barry’s fam­ily along with col­leagues, friends and ri­vals will be at­tend­ing this unique cel­e­bra­tion. In ad­di­tion to the Sheene com­mem­o­ra­tions, there will be the usual packed pro­gramme of racing or­gan­ised by NG Road Racing Club: www.castle­combe­cir­cuit.co.uk
