Fulfilling your need for WorldSBK action this weekend, yet another vintage favourite from the FIM Superbike World Championship will be premiered live across Facebook and YouTube. This week, it’s the turn of the all-Ducati battle of Misano’s Race 1 in 1999, in accordance to the weekend of Carl Fogarty. The race will be premiered on Saturday at 2pm CET, so 1pm for British fans!

Coming into the weekend, reigning World Champion ‘Foggy’ sported a 45-point lead after an emotional Nurburgring round, winning Race 1 but crashing five laps from the end and out of the lead, finishing 15th. At Misano in Ducati’s backyard, it was him and teammate Troy Corser who went head-to-head, swapping the lead throughout making for a thrilling last lap showdown. Corser passed Fogarty half-a-lap from home but the British ace fought back and with the two dicing towards the final few corners, it would be ‘King Carl’ who reigned supreme.
