Carl Fogarty & Ducati Reunited - Web Exclusive

The new Ducati 848 Evo used for the Challenge has received rave reviews and is widely regarded as the best machine on the market.

Oct 6, 2010

Four times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty will be reunited with the brand with which he became synonymous when he takes to the track at Oulton Park in England during this weekend's MCE British Superbike Championship finale.

Carl will ride an 848 during a track demonstration around the 2.69-mile parkland circuit to promote the Ducati 848 Challenge. Following the inaugural year for the Challenge, it will be expanded in 2011 to accompany selected BSB Championships events.

Carl last rode for Ducati in 2000 after amassing four world titles and 55 of his 59 WSB race wins for the famous Italian marque. His racing career was abruptly and prematurely curtailed by an accident in Philip Island, Australia. Few will forget the halcyon days of Foggie on board a Ducati in front of 120,000 adoring fans year after year at the Brands Hatch round of WSBK.

Oulton Park also figured prominently in Carl's British Championship career since it is local to his native Blackburn home, and he is honored permanently at the Cheshire venue by the Fogarty-Moss Centre, which serves as the venue's administration and hospitality facility.

The new Ducati 848 Evo that is used for the Challenge has received rave reviews and is widely regarded as the best handling middleweight machine on the market.

The 848 Challenge will visit some of the most iconic circuits in the UK and Europe with two rounds planned for Assen and Mugello.
