Donington Talent Cup World Superbikes

Donington Talent Cup World Superbikes

The team have just returned from Donington World Superbikes where Scott competed in round 3 of the British Talent Cup. After the ups and downs of Knockhill BSB, Scott was ready to make amends. Friday was busy as the programme requires that all of the practicing and qualifying is done on that day. There is little scope for recovery, both physically and for bike repairs in the event of a crash. Scott took the day in his stride, having to go out on the spare bike after his developed an oil leak at the start of FP 1. He was second in that session despite not practicing the week before as some of the older competitors had (you have to be 16 and older to ride on track days with a race Licence). The FP2 and QP sessions took place in the evening and were separated by a one hour break. We stayed down pit lane and fitted new tyres...

Knocks at Knockhill

A tougher weekend at Knockhill for Scott and our Premium Motorhomes entered team. FP1 on Friday morning was dry as Scott headed out to start his 30 minute session. An early crash at the fast turn 7 left him stuck at the other side of the circuit but with some help from Mrs Claridge, he got the bike back to pit lane but the damage to it and his leathers was too much to continue. After a major rebuild (thanks PFR for the excellent bars and brake protector) Scott was out again in FP2, setting the fastest standard lap and putting himself in a good place for Qualifying on Saturday morning where he was out at the front of the pack and quickly settled into a consistent rhythm, going faster than his lap record from last year. With 10 mins to go, he got caught up with an open bike at turn 1 and went down at high speed...

First Double Win at Brands Hatch

A successful weekend at Brands Hatch. Friday was dry and Free Practice one and two progressed well. Scott made numerous gearing and suspension changes and concentrated on race set up. Qualifying was early on a Saturday morning, again it was dry, and Scott settled into a rhythm and built up to speed throughout the session. He set pole position and was on the fourth row of the grid, with a buffer of open class riders behind him. He made a great start in Race one and his strategy worked,  extending a lead to 13 seconds by the chequered flag. It rained on Sunday morning but with a dry race forecast, Scott elected to miss the morning warm up. It started to dry about 45min before his race and was generally ok with some damp patches under the trees by the time Scott headed out on the warm up lap. The race start was a carbon copy of race one. By...

Scott Takes Joint lead in Oulton Opener.

Scott Takes Joint lead in Oulton Opener.

Scott continued his battle with Cameron Horseman at Oulton Park but this time on his Premium Motorhomes entered Motostar Standard bike. Just as last season, the slower open class bikes played a role in both races, thwarting Scotts attempts to break away from Cameron and ended the meeting with a win and a second place and shares the championship lead with him. ...

Scott Opens Up 20 Point Lead At Donington Park

Scott Opens Up 20 Point Lead At Donington Park

Coming into the weekend I felt really strong with being joint leader in the championship with Cameron Horsman. Friday I focused on setting consistent laps on my own and I ended up p3 overall. Saturday morning we decided to to take a risk and change the gearing, unfortunately at the beginning of the session I was already having troubles with it and had to come in and change it back which resulted in a loss of 8minutes on track ultimately leaving me to start on the 4th row in 10th for both races. Race 1 I knew I had to get to the front as quickly as possible and did my best to do so. By lap7 I was in the top 5 and in the battle for the lead. I sat at the back of the group just waiting for the right time. As soon as I saw the front 3 begin to break away I knew I had...

Season Finale British Talent Cup at the Valencia MotoGP

Season Finale British Talent Cup at the Valencia MotoGP

A tough couple of days for Scott at Valencia for the final round of the British Talent Cup. It’s not really stopped raining and Scott struggled to find a decent set up for Qualifying and ended near the back of the grid. He continued to work with Dani, the rider coach and Santi, the suspension expert and made further changes prior to the race, which worked! He got a good start and over the course of the race, moved forward to 6th and into the battle for the podium. Alas, his foot slipped off the foot peg onto the rear brake and he went down. Good progress though in difficult conditions. Well done to team mate Max Cook for taking the win and keeping the championship alive. Thank you to the team at the British Talent Cup and to Dorna for the images. Day two proved to be a much drier day. The final race of 2018. A great ride...

Valencia European Talent Cup Final Round

Valencia European Talent Cup Final Round

Unfortunately our weekend has come to an early end. Over the weekend throughout practice I showed great pace and being able to run with established riders in this class. Today has been a rollercoaster with many ups and downs. In the first qualifying practice I had an unfortunate crash at turn 10 resulting in a lack of track time however a good effort from my Dad, Gary and Chris I was able to ride the bike to a positive top 10. In the second qualifying I believed the tyre we had ran for the few laps would of been perfect for the session but I was wrong with the tyre ripping up and destroying its self ending in another crash. This meant I had to race the last chance race. Going to the grid I made a common mistake hitting the kill switch leaving me starting from pit lane. It was a positive race coming from pit lane to 3rd...
