Fogarty In Action On FP1 Road Bike In London - May 10th 2004
The road version of the PETRONAS FP1 is to be seen outside of Malaysia for the first time when Foggy PETRONAS Racing owner Carl Fogarty leads a massive biking convoy through London on Saturday May 8.
And there is still time for all bike enthusiasts to take part - all in aid of the team's official charity, the NSPCC.
The `Foggy Bike Ride' - sponsored by bike insurance specialist Footman James - will kick off from London's Ace Café on May 8th and, escorted by the Met's `Bike Safe' team, will cruise fifteen miles across to the Houses of Parliament.
Each rider is expected to pledge around £100 to the cause and, last year, the inaugural ride generated funds of over £15,000 for the charity.
Foggy said: "I am so pleased that I will be riding the PETRONAS FP1 on the Foggy ride. The bike has not been seen in public outside of Malaysia and I am sure this will attract even more interest. I was really surprised by the number of people who came along last year and hopefully we can raise even more money for the NSPCC this year with an even greater turn-out. It was an amazing feeling to ride through the streets of London, with all the traffic stopped by our Met Police escort. I was always known as King Carl when I was racing and I certainly felt like a king all the way from the Ace Café to Westminster. "
