Superbike star and winner of the 2014 series of 'I'm a Celebrity...' Carl Fogarty is set to race at a west Norfolk motorcycling festival.
Dirt Quake V, at the Adrian Flux Arena, in an annual celebration of alternative bike racing and will see Mr Fogarty, who has clocked up 59 world superbike victories, line up against his opponents on July 1, who will be riding types of bike not intended for racing around a speedway circuit.
The event is a chance for riders to enjoy the thrill of racing, away from the competitive spotlight at the top of the sport.
Mr Fogarty said: 'It looks like a weekend of fun and madness, and I like that kind of thing. You can enter any kind of bike, any kind of class. Triumph are sorting me a bike and I'm sure it will be something big and powerful, something way too fast for me and way too fast for the track. But that's the fun of it.'
The seven-time world champion and ambassador for event sponsors Bikesure, added: 'The key thing is to enjoy it. When I was racing I kind of never enjoyed actually riding bikes because I was so focused on winning there was pressure from myself and from fans.'
