Barry Sheene Festival Powered By Suzuki – Dean Harrison’s Third Barry Sheene Trophy Success

Dean Harrison recorded overall Barry Sheene Trophy victory for the third year in a row today at Oliver’s Mount, following another dominant performance on the Silicone Engineering Racing ZX7R 750 Kawasaki.

Victorious by almost ten seconds, the rider now up to 18 victories this year at Oliver’s Mount, was delighted with another major win secured in what has been arguably the best season of his pure road racing career to date.


Finishing joint second overall following the second leg of the Barry Sheene trophy races, where Dan Kneen, Mistral Racing Kawasaki and FZ 1000 Yamaha mounted David Bell.

Added top class performers from today’s racing at the mount included Michael Hand finishing an excellent fourth.

Phil Stead impressing again this time finishing fifth, Martin Harrison sixth and Craig Robertson, a highly respectable ninth.

Barry Sheene was without one of Oliver’s Mount’s all time greats. It’s fair to say that Dean Harrison is already an all time great at England’s only pure road racing circuit.

Not including the Bob Smith Spring Cup, he currently holds all the major titles at Scarborough.

Will he retain the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup in September? He starts for many and me included the firm favourite.
