The 2021 Barry Sheene Classic Meeting at Scarborough's Oliver's Mount track has been moved back one week to Saturday June 26 and Sunday June 27.

The date change was confirmed via a statement on https://www.oliversmount.com/: "Event date changes are never taken lightly as we understand the disruption it causes, but following strong demand for tickets for all of our 2021 events, it is hoped this move will see the event fall into step four of the Coronavirus Lockdown exit plan for England which should leave fewer spectators disappointed at not being able to get hold of a ticket for the popular event.

"It also has the additional benefit of avoiding a clash with the BSB Snetterton round so will prevent some riders and spectators having to choose between the 2 events.

"The casualty to this decision will be modern sidecars as the weekend of 26/27 June clashes with a FSRA British Sidecar Championship round and out of courtesy to FSRA, we do not wish to threaten either of our sidecar entry levels by having a clash of dates, so for this event, we will not be having a modern sidecar entry, but will instead look to fill the entry with more classic bikes and if at all possible, a field of classic sidecars.

"As ever, If you have already bought tickets for The Barry Sheene Classic event and cannot attend the new dates, please call Duke, on 01723-333322 to request a refund, or to move your tickets to any of our other events.​

"We apologise again for the inconvenience, but hopefully all will understand that for 2021, as in 2020, we have to remain flexible as Coronavirus still manages to dictate much of our usual routines, but hopefully this will become much less of a factor as the Summer moves on and we can get back to normality.

"There are no plans to change the dates of our other events at this time, but we will be guided by the latest Government announcements."
