Goodwood Revival 2019 - Barry Sheen Memorial Trophy - BMW Rennsport OL Special

This past September I was extremely fortunate to be part of the BMW team at the Goodwood Revival 2019.  We entered the #52 BMW Rennsport Oskar Liebmann Special with riders Sebastian Gutsch and Maria Costello.  

The bike has an amazing history in the US.  It was built by Oskar Liebmann in the mid 1960's at AMOL Precision in Dumont, New Jersey with support from the BMW factory works race shop. The OL Special was raced competitively for over 30 years by Oskar's son Kurt.  A more extensive history of the bike, along with extensive contemporary as well as modern photos can be found at

Below is footage from Goodwood Revival 2019. The video is of the entire second day of racing.  The Barry Sheen Memorial Trophy is the first race.  If you are impatient and want to skip the pre-prace interviews, the actual start of the race is at the 9:00 minute mark and coverage ends at 46:10.  Enjoy!
