Barry Sheene Festival of Speed at Eastern Creek Australia.

#1 Post by AndyT » Mon Mar 21, 2016 2:55 am

Guys

Just spent a fantastic weekend at the Barry Sheene festival of speed at Eastern creek west of Sydney.

Some great bikes and legendary riders were there. Caught up with Hybrid and had a great chat about all things related to the RZ500 thanks mate.

Main riders at this event were, Fast Freddie Spencer, Kevin Schwantz, Steve Parrish, Graeme Crosby, Jeremey McWilliams, Chris Vermeulen, Kevin Magee, Kork Ballington, Murry Sale

I have to say that Schwantz entered a few races and man he can still mix it up with guys a lot younger that him, he still has the speed and skill.

Check out some pictures

Cheers
Andy

There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in, but the holes are small, thats why the rain is thin
