Mick Doohan made his 500cc debut in 1989 at Suzuka, Japan racing with the Rothmans Honda Team and joining Australian team mate, Wayne Gardner. During his career which spanned 11 seasons (1989-1999) Doohan won 54 races, his first being the Hungarian GP, claimed 95 Podiums, 58 Pole Positions and most importantly won Five 500cc World Championships; (1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 & 1998) while racing with the Repsol Honda Team.
Mick raced during one of the most competitive era’s of 500cc racing and was unlucky not to secure both the 1991 and 1992 World Championships. A horrific injury in Assen in 1992 had him miss four races which ultimately cost him the World Championship after a commanding lead. Doohan is regarded as one of the greatest Motorcycle riders ever and has been named a MotoGP Legend.
