Steven 'Hizzy' Hislop was a Scottish motorbike racer. Steve won at the Isle of Man TT eleven times in his carear; he has also won the British 250cc Championship and British Superbike championship. Sadly Steve died when piloting his private helicopter in July 2003.

Hislop began his Isle of Man road racing career in 1983 by finishing second in the newcomers' race at the Manx Grand Prix. The 1992 Senior TT was an absolute classic, it is often described as one of the best races in TT history. Hislop's Norton took to the circuit in the unconventional white livery of Steve's long term sponsor Abus. 

Hislop's main rival was Carl Fogarty who started at number 4. As the race progressed, the two riders smashed records they set the previous year with Hislop taking a narrow advantage into the final lap. Fogarty recorded a record lap time of more than 123 mph on his Yamaha, it was all in vain however, as Hislop guided the fly splattered Norton home to a historic win. This was one of Hislop's greatest achievements and one of the most popular TT wins. Carl Fogarty's lap record stood for 7 years.
