Biography

Superstar and super-hero to his fans, Carl Fogarty’s TT exploits began in the mid-Eighties. He was the winner of the 1985 Lightweight Newcomers Manx Grand Prix and went on to win three TT races. The first was the 1989 Production 750 Race and he collected the 1990 Formula 1 and Senior trophies. He had an epic battle with Steve Hislop in 1992, thrilling the crowds in a Yamaha/Norton duel to the finish. Although Hislop won by four seconds Fogarty, on his Yamaha, wasn’t hanging around - he set a new outright record at 123.61 mph on the last, nail-biting lap! This record stood for seven years until 1999. His exploits in the World Superbike series have been well catalogued and he has won an unprecedented four titles.
