Barry Sheene Suzukis


If you're stuck for something to do on 23rd - 24th July 2016, and if you're within reasonable travelling distance of Scarborough, North Yorks, you might want to consider the Barry Sheene Festival at Oliver's Mount.


2016 is the 40th anniversary of Sheene's first world championship title, and the organisers (Auto 66 Racing) are looking to make this a very special celebration. To help matters along, Suzuki GB has just taken delivery of Barry Sheene's 1976 and 1977 world championship-winning race bikes which have been shipped from Australia for display at numerous bike events in 2016, including this event.

Suzuki GBís Tim Davies has been quoted as saying:  ď... we wanted to be a part of this event for a second consecutive year to celebrate such an occasion. The event at Oliverís Mount is always a good one, but we decided to step it up a notch for this year, and the display of the two championship-winning bikes is the first time that they have been displayed together at such an event in the UK."


There will be other classic Suzuki

 road bikes on display including the GSX-R750F restored at Motorcycle Live last year, and a TL1000S that was built from brand new parts the year before. The idea, apparently, is to highlight "Suzukiís commitment to its Vintage Parts Programme".
