Hizzy Champion Of Road And Track (DVD)
Release Date: 10/23/12
teve Hislop was one of the most successful riders of his generation with a talent that shone through on the most challenging road circuits as well as on GP-style tracks. For several years, and against serious competition - including TT legend Joey Dunlop - he made the famous Isle of Man TT Course his own, winning 11 TT's, including four Seniors. Most famously, he put a British bike back on top riding the rotary-engined Norton in the epic 1992 'White Charger' battle with Carl Fogarty. Hizzy was just as good on short circuits, winning the 250 Supercup in 1990. He also took the British Superbike Championship at his first attempt in 1995, a feat he repeated in 2002 at the age of 40. This story is packed with great moments in Steve's career and features tributes from Nial Mackenzie, John Reynolds, Paul Bird, Rob McElnea and others. It celebrates the achievements of a straight-talking master of his craft who mixed speed and aggression with a smooth style that was admired by his opponents. In a life plagued with setbacks, he just kept on winning ' a true champion of road and track. A donation from the proceeds of the sale of this film will be made to the Steve Hislop Memorial Fund.
