Race report: Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy Part 2 – Revival 2021

19th September 2021

Michael Dunlop and Steve Plater continued from where they left off on Saturday to dominate the second instalment of the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy. In doing so, they bagged the overall win on aggregate by a colossal margin.


It wasn’t all plain sailing, though, because Plater couldn’t get their MV Agusta in gear at the start. He was way down the order on the opening lap as Peter Bardell claimed an early lead on the Matchless G50 he shared with James Haydon, the duo having finished second in the opening race on Saturday.

However, the Italian machine was simply too fast for the opposition. Plater had recovered to seventh place by the end of lap two. This had become fifth by lap three and third by the time he reached Madgwick for the fourth time. He soon swept into the lead and scampered off up the road, handing the machine over to his wingman with a commanding lead. Dunlop ventured trackside in second place behind Haydon who had taken over from Bardell several laps prior. Haydon attempted to fend off the Isle of Man TT superstar, but to no avail. Dunlop wasn’t to be denied.
