Steve Hislop Life

Robert Steven 'Hizzy' Hislop (11 January 1962 – 30 July 2003) was a Scottish motorcycle racer.

Hislop has competed at the Isle of Man TT eleven times and has dominated the British 250cc Championship (1990) and British Superbike championship (1995 and 2002). In July 2003, Helop died while piloting his Robinson R44 helicopter.

In March 2010, he was inducted into the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame.

Personal life

"Hislop said he regretted his brother and many others in motorcycle accidents, but said he'd avoid going to the funerals of fellow racers." I only ever attend family funerals, and people are concerned that I would not attend a friend's funeral, but it's just my little way of expressing myself."

Hislop had two children by former partner Kelly Bailey, the first named Aaron Hislop, but the pair split just before his second son Connor was born. He had joint custody of the children and had fallen in love with girlfriend Ally Greenwood.

Hislop died in a helicopter crash near Teviothead, Roxburghshire, and was buried in the village of Chesters, near his birthplace, Hawick, Scotland.


Steve Hislop Career

Racing career

Hislop returned to his Isle of Man road racing career in 1983 by finishing second in the Manx Grand Prix, the year after Garry won it. His first championship success came when he captured the 250cc British Championship in 1990 on short circuits. In 1995, he won the Superbike Championship, as well as the British Superbike Championship. Some attributed James Whitham's revival in the series mid-season to complications with cancer [Whitham was behind in the championships before he fell behind]. Despite winning the BSB in 1996 or 1997, Hislop was recruited by Rob McElnea's top Cadbury team for 1998 [to the surprise of commentators and journalists, most notably BBC pundit Barry Nutley]. On the last lap at Snetterton, the team's representation of the championship between Hislop and teammate Mackenzie was best represented by a near-collision that cost the team a 1–2 finish. Hislop matched his countryman before an injury-driven crash brought him out of championship contention. He won the British Superbike Championship riding a Ducati in 2002. Hislop's modified Ducati, which was heavier and less robust than the standard Grand Prix bikes, was a key feature of his season, with Hislop lapping Donington Park on a superbike rather quickly than the fastest Moto GP machine: Hislop's modified production Ducati was faster and less responsive than the bespoke Grand Prix bikes.
