Carl Fogarty is a 7 times World Champion and one of the greatest British motorcycle racers of all time, the last rider who could win at World Championship level on the short circuits but also equally at home on the demanding road circuits such as the Isle of Man TT. A brilliant all-rounder his early successes came in the road based Formula 1 series, including 3 TT wins and a circuit record that stood for 7 years, ultimately winning the championship 3 years in a row. Moving onto the World Superbike Championship in 1992 he became one of the only true privateers to ever win a WSB race as well as winning the World Endurance Championship on a Kawasaki. Joining the official Ducati team in 1993 he began a period of dominance over the next few years that gave him 59 victories and 109 podiums on the way to 4 World Championships in probably the most competitive era of the sport. After dominating the championship in 1999, a crash at the 2000 Australian round of the championship led to his eventual retirement at the end of that season.
Each year Carl would be given a new paddock scooter by the Ducati team, painted up as a replica of his race bike. This is Carl's last ever one, presented to him at the start of the 2000 season and based on a 2000 Malaguti Phantom F12. Whilst road registered in Carl's name it was only ever used around the paddock and was then taken to his villa in Spain on his retirement where again it did not see much use so is offered in excellent condition. Dry stored and displayed in his house in recent years it will need a battery and recommissioning before use. Signed on the front number plate it comes together with a letter of provenance, the original V5 and a current V5C both in Carls name. A unique opportunity to acquire a genuine piece of Carl's racing history.
