I’ve been a biker since 1996. So you can imagine that I was just a little over-excited by the invitation from the Freedom to Go campaign to interview their newest supporter. Opportunities to talk to World Superbike legend and King of the Jungle Carl Fogarty don’t get handed out with the cornflakes!
The Freedom to Go campaign, backed by the Club, aims to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy exploring the UK in a caravan or motorhome. Carl is the latest sports star to give his support to the campaign.
The four-time world champion’s own introduction to caravanning was a baptism of fire. “You had to camp out at the race track wherever you were racing,” Foggy (as he’s known to fans) explained. “Back in 1985 I pitched up at Cadwell Park, went into town for a Chinese and came back to a smouldering little heap on the floor. A battery had shorted out and burnt my caravan down – and my leathers and helmet were in it!”
