1992 Senior TT

Course name: Mountain (post 1914)

Course length: 226.38 miles (6 laps)

Description: In 1992 Carl Fogarty made his last competitive TT appearance riding for the Loctite Yamaha team. His main rival that year would be Steve Hislop, riding a Norton, in plain white livery because there had been no time for the British firm to organise sponsorship.

Fogarty and Hislop were former team mates at Honda and the stage was set for an epic battle between the two. It culminated in the Senior race on the Friday, an encounter which has been voted by fans as the ‘greatest TT race ever’. Fogarty in his own words, “rode the wheels off the bike.” The lead changed on every lap as the two diced for supremacy. As Fogarty made his final charge over the mountain the exhaust blew, so hard was he riding.

Hislop went on to take victory and Fogarty finished second, but set a lap record which stood for seven years.
