The Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy Part 2 got off to a chaotic start when riders sprinted, Le Mans style, to their motorcycles at seemingly random times. As the 30-strong field barrelled into the Madgwick for the first time, there were so many changes of position it was hard to keep up with what was what. Add to that the cloud of cement dust as they negotiated the Chicane for the first few laps, and there was plenty to think about.

With two riders per bike, the roster of top-flight riders in the VIP grid was simply enormous. Names like John McGuinness, Josh Brookes, Michael Dunlop and Michael Rutter were all aboard their varied 1960s grand prix motorcycles for one of the closest races of the entire Goodwood Revival weekend. Ahead of the meeting, Steve Parrish confirmed that the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy would be his last race, and he shared his Norton Manx 30M with Freddie Sheene, son of great racer this fixture is named after, making it a particularly emotional affair.


By the time the flag dropped, and the results from Parts 1 and 2 had been aggregated, it was the Norton Manx 30M shared by Michael Rutter and Michael Russell that came home in first place. Next on the podium were Glen English and Steve Plater with their Matchless G50 and completing the top three were Davey Todd and George Thomas with their Norton Manx 30M.

But the result is only a small part of the story: in such a busy race packed with overtaking moves, there’s plenty of drama along the way.
