Fans and enthusiasts who attend this weekend's Barry Sheene Classic Road Race Festival at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough will be able to enjoy the sight and sound of three of the late world

The machines featured will be Barry's 1974 750cc Suzuki Superbike; his 1983 RG500 XR40 and the machine he rode, the last time he raced at 'The Mount' the 1984 RG500 XR45.

Also making a welcome return to the 2.43-mile hillside public road course is 1980 Gold Cup victor and seven-time TT winner, Mick Grant who will be riding the ex-works Suzuki GSXR
Superstock machine.

The action packed two-day race programme of 24 races, plus the special parades of the 'Sheene Machines' in addition to the scheduled laps by European and Japanese machines starts at 9.30am both Saturday and Sunday 23rd & 24th May.
