Barry Sheene Festival of Speed 2015

Last weekend I took the Daytona to race in the 2015 Barry Sheene Festival at Eastern Creek Raceway in NSW Australia. This meeting is for Post Classic Motorcycles only. The Daytona fits in the new Period 7 ( Pre Modern ) category for bikes produced from 1991-1995. Obviously the bike will never be competitive with the Jap bikes but it circulated mid field in a grid of 50 Bikes. It was a lot of fun and the bike ran beautifully until the accident ( see Separate post). Here is a photo of the bike in turn 11. It certainly is a head turner even if its not that quick. It attracted a lot of attention in the pits all weekend
