|Champion Barry Sheene DVD
Barry Sheene MBE was probably the most famous two-wheeled star to have ever come out of Britain.
The cheeky cockney was an inspiration to millions. There were other British champions who achieved more on the track, but the articulate, witty and confident ‘Bazza’ brought his successes to the attention of the British public – and they took him to their hearts. He was equally famous for overcoming his numerous crashes – at one time he had metal plates in both knees, 28 screws in his legs and a bolt in his left wrist!
Eminent motorcycle journalist Nick Harris narrates this superb DVD biography. In various interviews, Barry himself recalls most of the events he won between 1968 and 1984 including his 1976 and 1977 500cc World Championships and his 1973 FIM 750cc Championship.
The DVD features 45 minutes of extra footage, including the 1998 Assen Centennial and the Barry Sheene Memorial event at the 2003 Scarborough Gold Cup. There’s also footage of Bazza talking about his career on two, four and six wheels and putting the motorcycle world to rights! Plus: rare footage of the 1979 British GP, the 1981 Mallory Race of the Year and tributes from MCN’s Adam Duckworth and Matthew Birt.
This is the ultimate record of a true superstar.
