Yamaha motorcycle ridden by Carl Fogarty in the 1992 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT)

Date made: 1992

Maker: Yamaha

Description: This motorcycle was ridden by Carl Fogarty, a member of the Loctite Yamaha team, in the 1992 Isle of Man Senior Tourist Trophy (TT) race.

The machine is a 750cc Yamaha OWO1, in the red and white colour scheme of Loctite Yamaha. It carries Fogarty's number 4.

The 1992 Senior TT was voted by fans as the 'greatest ever' TT race. This was because of the epic clash between rivals Fogarty (on this machine) and Steve Hislop aboard a Norton. The lead changed with every lap as the two diced for supremacy. Steve Hislop won the race, but Fogarty set a lap record of 123.61mph, which stood for seven years. Fogarty went on to World Superbike success, winning four World Superbike Championships (1994, 1995, 1998 and 1999). He is arguably Britain's greatest living motorcycle racer.

Fogarty won the Lightweight Newcomers' race at the 1985 Manx Grand Prix and went on to win three TT races. In 1989 he won the production 750 TT, followed by the Formula One and Senior TT races in 1990. He started a total of 26 TT races.
