Fogarty apologises!

Hell freezes over?
Four-time World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty, never afraid to 'speak his mind' about other riders during - and after - his racing career, looks to have had a change of heart towards his former rivals.

In a somewhat out-of-the-blue posting on his Twitter account (@carlfogarty) earlier this week, Fogarty wrote:

"Been thinking... I just want to say sorry for the things I said when I was racing. Mainly to Aaron Slight, Scott Russell, Colin Edwards and...

"John Kocinski... sorry!"

'King Carl', who still holds the all-time record for World Superbike wins (59) and titles, raced in WSBK full-time from 1991-2000, when he was forced to retire after shattering his shoulder at Phillip Island.

The Englishman then headed the Foggy Petronas team during its five-year WSBK project, which came to an end in 2006.

'Hating' his rivals and being generally angry with the world was how he motivated himself at the time....might not haver made him a 'nice' guy but it made him an awesome racer! He had a very close friend die from cancer last year and it seems to have affected him deeply, this is one of many things he's come out with in recent months in a similar vein....accepting and being contrite about his perceived faults in the past is part of his desire to become a 'better' human being. Good on him for having the balls to do this but I never thought there was owt wrong with the old Foggy and back then anybody with a half a brain, including his rivals, could see how he functioned.
