1978 - Having read through a letter written by Graham Holt in your april issue over the Roberts versus Sheene argument, I would have thought no matter what Barry Sheene and his ego may suffer, surely as a member of the British public he should back him up.
Whatever anybody may think about Barry, good, bad or indifferent, he has made an impact on the public at large, thus helping the motorcycle sport and give it the true recognition it needs.
So to all the people who have to knock at Sheene, Read, Roberts, etc, etc... shut up. They are helping the sport which we watch and read about.
Also try being patriotic, back British riders, sidecar drivers and passengers and the under rated British Magnum engine because we are British and should be proud of it.
