Up to speed at Oliver’s Mount

Racing is set to be back on the agenda at Oliver’s Mount next month, in the form of the rescheduled Barry Sheene Classic.

Oliver’s Mount Racing, in conjunction with the 243 Road Racing Association, has announced two action-packed three-day weekend events for this year.

The Barry Sheene Classic was due to take place in July, but this has now been rescheduled to August 14 to 16, as a three-day bonanza.


The hugely popular Gold Cup will remain on September 11 to 13 as per the original calendar set out at the start of the season, but now that is also extended to a three-day meeting.

Each meeting will have three thrilling days of road racing action, practice and qualifying on Friday, with two full days of racing on Saturday and Sunday.

Behind the scenes, staff at Oliver’s Mount Racing have worked tirelessly to ensure that road racing continues this season, and now with the full backing of Scarborough Borough Council, plus working in partnership with the ACU and all of the original partners – Suzuki UK, RST, Arai, Bennetts, and Ashcourt’s – they have been able to confirm the new three-day events at the North Yorkshire track.


Director Eddie Roberts added: “I’m delighted to reveal our exciting plans for Oliver’s Mount. We’ve been forced to delay the calendar, but now to have two meetings is brilliant news.

“More time on track on Friday will allow the riders to get back up to speed, and two full days of racing is unprecedented at Oliver’s”.

The team is in constant communication with the ACU, plus the local council and will abide by any government restrictions which may come into effect later in the year.


The safety of supporters, teams and riders will come before anything else.

Further information and details will follow in the coming weeks – so fans are wise to check online – as only a limited number of pre-sold tickets will be available, and there will be further restrictions for riders/entrants and paddock movement/occupancy.

However, plans are being made in line with government and ACU guidelines.


Current day/weekend/season tickets will be valid and tickets in limited numbers will be available from the partner Duke Marketing.

If the worst happens and the event does not go ahead, full refunds will be made. Visit www.oliversmount.com
