Barry Sheene Classic Moved Back A Week Till 26th-27th June

As with the returning Spring Cup meeting, Oliver’s Mount Racing organisers have made the decision to move back the popular Barry Sheene Classic event to a slightly later date of 26th-27th June.

Unfortunately for three wheeling fans, there won’t be any modern Sidecar action at Scarborough in June, due to a clash with a FSRA (Formula Sidecar Racing Association) British Sidecar Championship round.

Commenting about this topic plus going into further detail around the new dates for the Barry Sheene Classic (26th-27th June), the ever hard working Oliver’s Mount organisers stated the following:

“Event date changes are never taken lightly as we understand the disruption it causes but following strong demand for tickets for all of our 2021 events, it is hoped this move will see the event fall into step 4 of the Coronavirus Lockdown exit plan for England.

Which should leave fewer spectators disappointed at not being able to get hold of a ticket for the popular event.”

“It also has the additional benefit of avoiding a clash with the BSB Snetterton round so will prevent some riders and spectators having to choose between the 2 events.

The casualty to this decision will be modern sidecars as the weekend of 26/27 June clashes with a FSRA British Sidecar Championship round and out of courtesy to FSRA, we do not wish to threaten either of our sidecar entry levels by having a clash of dates.

So for this event, we will not be having a modern sidecar entry but will instead look to fill the entry with more classic bikes and if at all possible, a field of classic Sidecars.”
