In a world where it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain a dominance in any sporting discipline, Fogarty has won the World Superbike Championship no fewer than four times including back-to-back wins. Carl has come a long way since the early 1980s when he used to travel to circuits as far away as Finland in a clapped-out old horsebox. But those early days were also wild and enjoyable times. Tales of hell-raising abound: staggering home at five in the morning before the Isle of Man TT was clearly not the best preparation for one of the most dangerous races in the world. This autobiography tells his tale of a working class Lancashire boy made good in one of the most dangerous and glamorous of sports.
Carl Fogarty is the four-time World Superbike Champion and the hero of millions of bike fans worldwide. Neil Bramwell, who has collaborated with Carl Fogarty in writing this book, is the sports editor of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph and has co-written many articles with Fogarty for the paper.
