Foggy v Chili
Carl Fogarty clashed with many of his rivals during his illustrious racing career, but none were as public as his spat with Frankie Chili at Assen in 1998.
In race two, the factory Ducati duo were out front and fighting for the win when Chili crashed out at the chicane on the final lap. Chili claimed that Foggy had tried to ram him off the track. Furious at missing out on the win, the Italian stormed up to Fogarty in pitlane and punched his helmet. The two men were pulled apart, but it wasn’t over. Chili, who had been back to his motorhome to have a shower and cool off, stormed into the post-race press conference in his dressing gown, grabbed the microphone and continued to lambast Foggy, before the two had to be split up again.
The Italian, who had – up until this point of his career – escaped the wrath of Foggy, then declared he would do everything in his power to prevent the Brit from winning the world championship.
He failed to deliver on the threat as Foggy wrapped up his third WSB crown at the final round in Japan.
