Michael Dunlop, Steve Plater proved the one’s to beat during the past weekend’s Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy races, at the extremely popular Goodwood Revival.
Post storming to qualifying honours, Saturday’s opening 17 lap yesteryear machinery contest would see the 500 MV Agusta mounted duo vault to race victory, finishing victorious by almost eight seconds.
Sunday’s two wheel Goodwood contest yielded an even more forthright race triumph, with the 21 times TT winner’s combined triumphing by over 25 seconds.
Aside from nine times successive Armoy ‘Race of Legends’ victor Dunlop, eight times North West 200 winner Plater, the high quality field at Goodwood also included the following International roads luminaries:
Rostrum finisher alongside Michael Russell, Michael Rutter, Davey Todd, James Hillier, Conor Cummins, Ashcourt Racing’s Lee Johnston.
John McGuinness MBE, Goodwood Revival newcomers Ian Lougher, reigning Senior TT Champion Dean Harrison, Maria Costello MBE and the cross generations John Chapman MV Agusta team of Mick Grant and Gary Johnson.
