Barry Sheene was a hero of motorcycle racing. A two-time 500cc World Champion, his name is stamped on motorcycle history – a smiling, friendly man who had just one speed on a bike: fast.

Sadly Sheene passed away in March 2003, but in September 2002 he was at Goodwood aboard the no.7 500cc Manx Norton in the Lennox Cup, and what a show he, and four of the other runners, put on for the crowd.
Barry’s brilliance saw him take his third win in three consecutive years, taking the chequered flag ahead of Wayne Gardner by just 0.156 seconds.
His passing led to the Lennox Cup being renamed the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy. He will always be remembered at Goodwood for brilliant battles just like this.
