Barru Sheene Road Races - Oliver's Moun

The Club replaced the Series with races for Modern Machinery which has attracted a good entry of up and coming stars
The Auto 66 Club has put together an action packed programme for the second annual Barry Sheene Race Festival at Oliver's Mount Scarborough.

The meeting takes place over the weekend of 23rd and 24th May. The main attraction will be the Classic Races and Parades which has attracted a good cross section of Racing Machines from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Originally the meeting was to host a round of the IHRO European Championship but due to the lack of support on the continent it had to be cancelled.

The Club replaced the Series with races for Modern Machinery which has attracted a good entry of up and coming stars of the future including Daniel Frear from Scunthorpe, who headed the Duke Road Race Rankings after the opening round of the Rankings at the Mount in April, Mick and Mark Goodings from Doncaster, David Bell from Chester-Le-Street, Richard Gibson from South Cave, Darren Percival from Whitley Bay, Keith Pringle from Hetton-Le-Hole, Neil Vicars from Tadcaster, Tim Poole from Northwich, Phil Harvey from Goole, Jules Croft from
Lincoln plus a host of Irish Riders.

The Classic Races have attracted some very special machinery, including the 500cc Grand Prix Paton Machines which will be ridden by Ryan Farquhar and Olie Linsdell.

Ryan winner of the Senior Classic Manx Grand Prix for the past two years at record speeds and Olie on top form after winning the Classic Race at the recent Tandragee 100 Road Races, again at record speed are set to be arch-rivals to lift the prestigious Denis Parkinson Trophy!

The 500cc MV 3 that made its debut at last year's Manx Grand Prix will be ridden by Phil Sharp. Last year's winner John MacFarlane will ride an 1100cc Suzuki Superbike in the Barry Sheene Trophy event. Tim Poole making only his second appearance at Oliver's Mount will ride a 750cc Yamaha OW01 in the Sheene Race.

There will be a total of 24 Races over the two days plus Parades of European Racing Machines and Japanese Racing Machines again over the two days. Practice will commence at 09.30 each day and the Parades at 11.10 on Saturday and 10.30 on the Sunday. Racing will commence on Saturday at 12.30 and 11.10 on Sunday.

Advanced ticket sales are now closed, admission is available at the entrance, adults £15 each day or a two day ticket £28, accompanied children 15 and under and parking is free.

The Barry Sheene Classic Road Race Festival is the fifth round of the Duke Road Race Rankings Series and the second event of the year from Oliver's Mount to count towards the 2009 Series.
