One of the museum’s own race bikes was very much “used in anger”, when it took place in the Barry Sheene memorial race at the Goodwood Revival weekend in September.
Our Fred Walmsley tuned FWD Manx Norton was ridden by non-other than TT superstar John McGuinness, partnered by classic champion Glen English.
Over the 2 races that make up the event, the pair achieved a creditable 8th place against some stiff competition from the multi cylinder MV Agusta’s.
“McPint” even had a new set of leathers made especially for event which looked great with the museum logo displayed proudly on the back.
Don’t forget that John McGuinness is one of the guest stars appearing at our Museum LIVE weekend held on 30/31 October.
John will be appearing as part of our Henry Cole & Friends live stage show on the Sat of the event.
