TT stars line up for retro race meeting

A raft of big-name TT riders will compete in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy at the Goodwood Revival in September.

They include 23-time TT winner and MCN columnist John McGuinness and TT race-winner Dean Harrison, who will both compete on Matchless G50s; the 135mph TT lap record-holder Peter Hickman along with 18-time winner Michael Dunlop, five-time winner Michael Rutter, two-time winner Gary Johnson, race winner James Hillier and Conor Cummins, all riding Manx Nortons; while roads and BSB star Lee Johnston will also compete aboard an MV Agusta.

Track action is scheduled every day of the three-day event (13-15 September), with qualifying on Friday and a two-part race held Saturday and Sunday. Timings have yet to be confirmed, but expect it to be around late morning – similar to 2018’s schedule where racing began at 11am.

The pro-am-style racing sees two riders per bike and pitstops to change riders half-way through.

As usual, the Revival is held at the historic Goodwood Circuit in West Sussex and spectators are expected to dress in period 1950s clothing.
