Two rare Ducatis ridden by Carl Fogerty to go under the hammer
BONHAMS auction house have announced that two former Carl Fogarty Ducatis will go under the hammer in April this year.
The models are a Ducati 888 Corsa, ridden to victory by Fogarty in the North West 200 in 1993 and a 1998 916SPS ‘Fogarty Replica’, number #002, given to Fogarty by the Ducati factory after he won his third Superbike Championship in 1998.
Both bikes are owned by a private collecter in Northern Ireland. Both bikes are expected to fetch in excess of £25,000 each.
I'll never understand why people will pay huge sums of money for a bike just because so and so rode it in such and such a race.
Can any collectors explain the fascination to me? This is a serious question. Not a put doen.
