The rescheduled date for the Barry Sheene Memorial Dinner has been officially announced as Saturday August 7th during the British Superbike weekend at the Kent race track, Brands Hatch.
Guests will include Steve Parrish who will give an insight in to what it was like being Barry’s team mate and best friend. Margaret Smart and Paul Smart, Barry’s Sister and Brother in Law along with their son and current racer, Scott will be along also.
