James Toseland could have saved himself a lot of bother - you don’t need to beat the best in the world week after week to land a WSB champion’s trophy – one of Carl Fogarty’s is up for grabs in an auction.
It’s part of a range of Foggy clobber collected by his dad George over the years and being sold off in October.
The collection contains items from Foggy’s earliest days as a novice in the 1980s to the pinnacle of his career as a four-times world champion in WSB in the 1990s.
Rostrum caps, gloves, paddock jackets, helmets and sets of leathers will be included at the Bonhams auction, which is at The Classic & Motorcycle Show in Stafford. Viewing for the auction is on October 16, with the auction itself on October 17 at 11am.
Other items include:
His ACU Restricted Road Race Licence (estimate £300-500),
His FIM framed Champion's Certificates for the 1988 and 1989 TT Formula 1 and the 1992 Endurance Road Race World Championship (each estimated at £500-1000)
Carl's five Isle of Man TT Silver Replicas (estimate £800-1200 per trophy),
his father George's six bronze TT Replicas (estimate £150-300 each) and one in silver (estimate £300-500),
The 1994 World Superbike Championship Trophy commemorating the first of Carl's unequalled four WSB Championships (estimate £1,500-£2000).
