Review quote

Welcome to the whacky World According to Foggy.

This is a full-throttle, rip-roaring, white-knuckle pillion ride with motorcycle racing icon Carl Fogarty, a man the nation took to their hearts as 'King of the Jungle' in the 2014 series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The World According to Foggy is packed with hilarious tales from inside and outside the sport. Racers past and present, including Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Ian Hutchinson, Steve Hislop and Guy Martin, all come under Foggy scrutiny.

He dips into the memory banks to relive those special moments of his career in World Superbikes and at his 'spiritual home', the Isle of Man TT, and talks candidly for the first time on his venture into team ownership, as well as his inner demons.

Ultimately, The World According to Foggy reveals the real man behind the visor: cheeky, witty, down-to-earth... and ever-so-slightly bonkers.
