Rennie Scaysbrook has recently presented her new book “Race of the Titans”Where, in 62 pages and 100 illustrations tells based on illustrations and accompanying texts the battle they fought in the 1992 Senior TTthe legendary Steve Hislop and Carl Fogarty.

Scaysbrook, winner of Pikes Peak 2019, within the Aprilia Tuono Factory team, knows very well what racing is about and especially such emblematic competitions as the Isle of Man or Pikes Peak itself.

The same weekend that motorsport idol Carlin Dunne passed away, Rennie won the 97th edition of Pikes Peak, breaking the previous record with a time of 09:44:963. In addition, he would debut in 2022 in the Tourist Trophy, following in the footsteps of his father Jim Scaysbrook. The latter participated in the 1978, 1980 and 1984 editions.

Already in 2023, Scaysbrook Jr. returned to the island at the controls of a BMW S1000RR, reaching 31st position in the Supersctock category. Furthermore, in 2021 he already wrote his first book related to the world of two wheels: “The Big Book of Motorcycles”.

“Race of the Titans”: Winning Genetics

In “Race of the Titans” depicts the battle fought by Steve Hislop and Carl Fogarty in 1992 within the Senior TT category. Although Fogarty did not want to compete in the legendary British race again, his need for funds to return to WSBK pushed him to return riding a Yamaha OW01.

For his part, Steve “The Flying Haggis” Hislop was initially without a motorcycle, but Norton offered him the chance to compete with his 588 NRS, even counting on the support of the Isle of Man tourist office, which managed to raise £10,000 for facilitate the participation of the local brand.

Throughout the almost two hours and 228 miles of the demanding and dizzying test, Hislop managed to accumulate a minimal advantage over Fogarty, reaching a distance of up to 7.4 seconds in some sections of the route. However, as MCN colleagues say, a pit stop by the Scot meant practically losing the space cushion with respect to the Australian.

In the last lap, Fogarty even managed to break the record set by Hislop himself in the previous lap, lowering his mark by 3 seconds. But it was not enough to end up winning, as the Norton driver finally crossed the finish line 4.4 seconds behind the Australian.
