Barry Sheene took the honours at the Goodwood Revival, narrowly beating Wayne Gardner to the Lennox Cup trophy.

Sheene who’s battling cancer of the oesophagus and stomach beat his Aussie rival to the title on aggregate times after they’d had won a round each of the classic race.

The two-time world 500cc champion told MCN: " Yeah, it felt fantastic racing like that again. Me and Wayne trust each other implicitly, which makes racing wheel-to-wheel like that a possibility. "

Sheene also revealed that he’s turned his back on conventional cancer treatment in favour of natural remedies.

He said: " I’m not going to poison myself with chemotherapy and I’m not going to have half my stomach cut out either. I’m going to beat it my way with a special diet and that’s it.

" And anyway I’m not going to die. I promised my kids I’ll be alright – and I won’t let them down. "
