Classic British Legends: Barry Sheene

Motorcycle racers – or indeed any sportsman or woman from a ‘minority’ activity – have rarely ‘crossed over’ into the public’s collective consciousness. But just as a policeman can still say; “Who do you think you are, Stirling Moss?’ to a youth driving too fast and they’ll (perhaps) know who’s being referred to or at least understand the implication, so too does Barry Sheene remain the best known motorcycle racer Britain has ever produced.
