The World According to Foggy
By Carl Fogarty
A pulsating and entertaining flat-out charge through life by Carl Fogarty, the legendary motorbike racing icon.
Published to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the Superbike World Championship, The World According to Foggy will delight the legions of motor sport fans in the UK and beyond, and will be lapped by those who have enjoyed books by Valentino Rossi, Guy Martin, Michael Dunlop, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson and Freddie Spencer.
Foggy's scintillating new book takes his fans into the memory banks of this most charismatic and straight-talking of sporting icons, transporting them into the weird and wonderful world of this endearingly quirky hero of the track.
The World According to Foggy contains lashings of adrenaline-fuelled bikes and electrifying bike racing, thrills and spills galore, but it will also reveal the man behind the helmet, his passions and frustrations, what makes him still leap out of bed in the morning and seize the day - ultimately, what makes this great man tick and explains his enduring popularity.
Carl Fogarty is an ocean-going, fur-lined, five-star icon of motor sport. And a national treasure to boot, following his triumph in 2014's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.
The 51-year-old legend is the most successful World Superbikes rider in the history of the sport, winning four World Championship titles - in 1994, 1995, 1998 and 1999 - before injury called time on his illustrious career in 2000.
Forming an unstoppable partnership with the iconic Ducati team, and also riding for Honda, Fogarty won 59 races in 12 seasons and in the process carved himself a seat at motor sport's top table. He also enjoyed huge success in the Isle of Man TT.
