no politics...just ridin'

Number 7

Barry Sheene passed away on Monday 10 March 2003, aged 52. He was a great bloke and a champion rider, winning the 1976/1977 500cc world championship wearing his cherished number 7. In 1987 he swapped his native England for Oz and went on to become a highly respected motor racing commentator on Australian television.

With it being 7 years since his passing I thought it appropriate that I post a couple of videos in his memory - and if you are in Sydney, don’t forget to check out the Barry Sheene Festival of Speed 3-4 April 2010 at Eastern Creek.
