Carl Fogarty given academic award

Four-time WSBK champion and proud Lancastrian receives Honorary Fellowship from the University of Central Lancashire

CARL FOGARTY last week swapped his leathers for a mortar board and gown when he received an Honorary Fellowship from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in a presentation at the Guild Hall in Preston.

Foggy collected his award in front of friends and family, and graduates from UCLan’s School of Film, Media and Performance.

Explaining the reason for the award, a spokesperson for the university said:

‘We are delighted to confer an Honorary Fellowship to a sporting great who has a great affinity with our county.

‘Carl Fogarty is enormously proud of his Lancastrian roots and his determination to become the best in the world was legendary. To win the World Superbikes championship once was hard enough but to win the title four times is a feat which hasn’t been surpassed.

He has achieved so much success during his career and he is a great example to our graduates and our wider University community.’

Fogarty, who adds the award to his MBE, four World Superbike titles and King of the Jungle crown said: ‘It’s always nice to receive recognition for your achievements and I’m honoured that the University of Central Lancashire chose me to receive an Honorary Fellowship. I perhaps should have tried a bit harder with my education so hopefully this award can inspire others to carry on with their studies and pursue their dreams.’

Carl Fogarty, one of the most renowned and esteemed academics of our time. So great are his achievements in this field that he gets given an award by a university.

Maybe it's time for the head of WSBK to honour Stephen Hawking.


What a great story! So nice to see somebody who went to work doing something on his own and got an academic reward for that.

Congratulations one more time, he is a great sportsman! And I am happy that universities give the academic awards to successful people, so they support the roots and community. When I was writing my admission essay, I mentioned awards like this one as a great motivation to study, being successful, remember roots and ancestors, and caring about the community. This was one of the most important papers for me, so I asked a little help from to continue and complete my writing well. Did you check some resources before writing it? I got to some university/college sites like where I found information about preparation. Also, I found how to write different papers, etc., it helped me too.

Carl Fogarty deserved to win this Academic Award, and I am glad that he got this award. I know that a lot of people don't think Carl is as good as people make him out to be, but they don't know him well.
