Who is Carl Fogarty?

Born on July 1, 1965, Carl Fogarty was raised by former World Superbike father George in Blackburn, England.

Backed by his funding father, Carl enjoyed riding bikes from a young age but his competitive debut did not come until 14.

Foggy soon progressed on to the international stage before becoming the Formula 1 TT world champions at just 23.

And his name began to hit the headlines having achieved a double Isle of Man race triumph alongside winning the world cup – something which not even his father had achieved.

In 1991, Carl got a shot at his first World Superbike Championship representing Honda UK where he finished seventh overall.

But two years later, Fogarty began his Ducati riding era which led to a famous first 1994 World Superbike Championship win for the Englishman.
