Troy Corser set new records and a historic victory recently at the Goodwood Revival.
On the BMW R 57 Kompressor, Troy Corser and Herbert Schwab won the overall placings as they competed for the traditional Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy.
In the first race on the Saturday, the duo crossed the finishing line in third place after a false start and a subsequent spectacular pursuit.
In the second race on the Sunday, Corser and Schwab even succeeded in passing the chequered flag as winners. This enabled them to come out on top in the overall placings when the two results were put together.
On the BMW R 57 Kompressor, the two-times Superbike World Champion also rode the fastest lap of the entire weekend, and simultaneously achieved the best lap time ever ridden on the Goodwood Circuit with a classic motorcycle.
The races for the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy recall the “BMCRC 1000cc Scratch Race” in which grand prix bikes, slightly modified road motorcycles and specials battled for victory on “Motor Cycling Goodwood Saturday” in 1951.
