How about this for a cracking bit of old bike racing action from 1979?
It’s awesome footage from an old Grandstand BBC programme.
This is the second race of the 1979 Transatlantic Trophy at Brands Hatch and it’s a tour de force by Barry Sheene against the likes of Dave Aldana, Tom Herron and Mike Baldwin.
Well worth watching, we were put on to it by our mate Malc at Classic Racer magazine. It’s 11 minutes and 21 seconds that we absolutely loved. Murray Walker’s commentary makes it, too.
