Spencer to ride Sheene Suzuki


Three-time motorcycle world champion Freddie Spencer will climb aboard Barry Sheene’s 500cc title-winning Texaco-Heron Suzuki RG500 at the Hall of Fame awards evening on June 7.

The American will ride the famous bike up the Royal Automobile Club’s Captain’s Drive ahead of the main awards ceremony and dinner. It will be joined on static display by the 1977 Suzuki on which Sheene retained his world championship. Both have recently been restored and serve as an excellent tribute to the great Londoner.

Other active exhibits include an ex-John Surtees MV Agusta, ridden by baker-turned-amateur racer Paul Hollywood, and a McLaren F2 that Piers Courage drove to victory in the Tasman Series.
