The Lancastrian is regarded as motorcycle royalty, being the most successful World Superbike racer of all time, winning four titles in 1994, 1995, 1998 and 1999. Alongside his World Superbike exploits, Foggy competed in 26 races at the Isle of Man TT, winning three – The 1989 Production 750 race and the 1990 Formula 1 and Senior TTs. He also broke the lap record in 1992, setting a time of 18m18.8s at an average speed of 123.61mph, a record that stood for seven years.
Other successes for Fogarty include victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Bol d’Or, the Ulster Grand Prix and the North West 200. In 1993, he dominated the North West, setting a new lap record and winning both Superbike races, beating road-racing legends Joey and Robert Dunlop to the top step. He last appeared at the festival in 2008.
Speaking of his return to Goodwood 'Foggy' said: “I am excited to be returning to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. It is a special event in the motorsport calendar and I’m thrilled to be representing Triumph, especially on such iconic bikes from the past and present. Hopefully we can provide a real spectacle for the thousands of spectators.”
