Carl Fogarty to be Figurehead for the Ducati 848 Challenge

Posted on


Four times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty will take on an ambassadorial role with Ducati to promote and support the Rapid Solicitors Ducati 848 Challenge.

Carl became a supporter of the 848 Challenge last year when he rode an 848 on a parade lap at the Oulton Park British Superbikes round to help promote the series. Since then Carl has taken a keen interest in the 848 Challenge and is honoured to become an ambassador for the series.

Fogarty will make a number of appearances at British Superbike rounds as well as possibly one or two at the overseas rounds at Assen and Monza. He will be on hand to give advice and mentoring to the 848 Challenge riders and pass on his knowledge of the seven circuits that the series will visit. As well as sharing his experience with the 848 Challenge riders Carl will also be available to present trophies, media interviews and personal appearances.

Carl commented on his new ambassadorial role with Ducati and the 848 Challenge ’I am very pleased to be asked to be involved with the 848 Challenge and pass on my experience to the riders and also hopefully help some of the young and up and coming guys. The 848 Evo is a fantastic bike and the Challenge should produce a great spectacle at every one of the eight rounds.’ 

The 848 Challenge starts at Brands Hatch on the 23,24,25 April where Carl Fogarty will be on hand to calm early season nerves, pass on commiserations and congratulations and present trophies to the winners.
