Big events, big noise and big personalities
- the 1999 World Superbike Championship had all three in abundance making it an absolute classic for fans across the globe.
Ducati’s lightning strike start and Carl Fogarty’s first win at the very first race (Kyalami) signalled a clear warning to teams and riders.
However, Ducati teammate Troy Corser, Honda’s Colin Edwards and Aaron Slight, Pierfrancesco Chili of Suzuki, and the Yamaha-mounted Noriyuki Haga took the fight to the loudmouth Lancastrian with gusto.
In what would prove to be his swansong, Foggy was at his imperious best, mounting the top step of the podium no fewer than 11 times on his way to securing his fourth WSBK title.
This classic review recaps the very best action from each round, emphasising the extremely close racing between some of the biggest names ever to grace the championship.
Join Julian Ryder and Keith Huewen for this action-packed and entertaining review of a year that has gone down in history as one of the greatest ever.
