Johnny Cecotto tells about Barry Sheene
Posted by: Gerard Kampen on Sep 4, 2008My story about Barry Sheene.
Barry Sheene was my best friend in motorcycle racing
He was a fantastic rider and a nice person to be around.
I remember so many good things and of course the nice travelling that we did together to and from the Grand Prix races.
We really enjoyed that time together in racing.
I lost contact with him when he moved to Australia.
I called him when I heard about his illnes, and spoke to him for a long time on the phone. It was very nice to talk to him again after such a long time.
He promised to visit me in a short time, but unfortunately this never happened , his health was to bad and he was very weak.
I was very sad about the fact that he couldn't come over to visit.
I would have really liked to see him again and spend some more time together with him and his family.
He was very open and friendly and he was a good friend to me.It isquit sad that he died at such a young age, we will all miss him very bad.
He was a very special person to me an many others !!!!
