Barry Sheene memorabilia is something special as he is regarded as a colourful charismatic racer who defined the ‘70s era when he seemed unbeatable on the racetrack.
Barry a former British world champion, Grand Prix motorcycle racer was born in London 1950 he tragically died in Australia in in 2003 following a short illness.
He was awarded the MBE in 1978.
Many will remember the iconic photographs, some of which I have in my collection, of Barry and James Hunt together at various events, James having won the 1976 formula one world motor racing championship in Japan. Many of these photos are part of a hand signed presentation.
Barry holds the enviable position as the only rider to win Grand Prix races in both the 50cc and 500cc categories.
Barry Sheene memorabilia from any of his Grand Prix events is very collectable particularly in the years 1976/77.
He began his Grand Prix career in 1970 racing a 125cc Suzuki in the Spanish Grand Prix his first Grand Prix win came the following year in Belgian.
In 1973 he won the formula 750cc, in both 1976 and 1977 he won the 500cc motorcycle championships.
On his retirement he worked as a motorsport television commentator down under where he also pursued his property development interests.
