Superbike legend Carl Fogarty will return to Goodwood after an eight-year exile for a high-octane meeting of Triumph’s rich past and exciting future.
The undisputed World Superbike king will take four classic Triumphs – two old and two spanking new – along the famous 1.16-mile Hillclimb track.
And you can be there too!
To catch a glimpse of the four-time World Superbike championship winner in action, come back to ForTheRide on Sunday from 11am for all the action from this year’s Festival of Speed.
Foggy will be riding the new Thruxton R and Speed Triple through Lord March’s back garden, but there will be a twist as he appears on the famous stretch with two classics whose names are etched in Triumph’s heritage.
Thanks to the National Motorcycle Museum, he’ll be pushing Malcolm Uphill’s 750 Production class TT winning Bonneville, the first to smash a 100mph lap, to its limit.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Festival will be a rare opportunity to compare the two triples’ performance as legendary Production TT winning Trident ‘Slippery Sam’ also gets an outing.
Carl said: “Goodwood 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. Expect a performance!”
When he’s not chasing records up the hill, we’ll be catching up with the King of the Jungle and the bikes in the Motorcycle Paddock.
The Hillclimb takes place throughout Saturday and Sunday, but the For The Ride team will be there both days to capture all the action from the Triumph stand and the Paddock.
The climb has been the focal point of the action side of the Festival since it started in 1993, after Lord March was inspired by a similar event organised by the ninth Duke of Richmond Freddie March in 1936, for the Lancia Car Club.
The track, which has an elevation change of 92.7 metres and an average gradient of 4.9%, will host Foggy, former F1 World Champions Jenson Button and Emerson Fittipaldi, 11-time TT winner Bruce Anstey and Motocross and Supercross icon Ricky Carmichael among many others.
Don’t forget to come back this Sunday to catch all the action from Goodwood Festival of Speed.
