A Tough Weekend for Scott at Assen for the British Talent Cup

A tough weekend at Assen for Scott with a crash in Qualifying, a 10th place in Race 1 and a crash in today’s race at the super fast turn 11 when the bike highsided him off at over 110mph.

Close Racing at the BSB Silverstone National

Close Racing at the BSB Silverstone National

Silverstone on the National circuit was always going to be a close affair as it lacks any high speed and maintain-momentum corners, other than Copse. It did however encourage some fairing rubbing and Scott featured at the sharp end all weekend. Saturdays race 1 saw Scott ready to take the lead with brilliant pace before another rider tried an overly ambitious move at Maggotts and sent him into the gravel trap, buckling the rear wheel and writing off a set of bodywork plus bars, pegs etc. Scott started Race 2 on Sunday from 8th place. That race turned out to be a belter and received a good deal of TV coverage. Scott held the lead for a number of laps but the presence of an open class bike ahead of him (as is happening all too often) meant he couldn’t break away. The lead changed frequently and after some slipstreaming, Scott took a brilliant third place, or so we thought....

Weather Washes out Race 2 at Silverstone Talent Cup

Weather Washes out Race 2 at Silverstone Talent Cup

A good first day at Silverstone for the British Talent Cup Championship. With back to back Free practice and qualifying plus the threat of rain towards the end of the session it was going to be tricky to manage. Scott ended FP2 in a strong 4th. The track was damp initially and they went out on full wets. For the following qualifying, the bikes were fitted with slicks and he was out on track at the front and managed to set a time good enough for 6th place before the heavens opened and effectively ended the session. Many thanks to the BTC team, Richard Dilks, his helper(and parent this weekend) and to Dick Herzberg and Peter Ormiston for their support.  It was a good result for Scott in Race 1, gaining points in the championship and closing 4 th and 5th place but ending 6th. With a wet day forecast, it wa going to be tricky however, the track became flooded...

Ogden just misses out on podium finish

Ogden just misses out on podium finish

14-year-old Scott Ogden battled the bruising from a high-side in race one to finish less than half a second from the podium in race two. The young motorcycle racer from Belton now lies fourth in the championship standings in his first full year of British Moto3 racing. Free Practice Ogden used the free practice sessions to get used to the narrow Cadwell Park circuit and the tricky Mountain section of the course that often sees riders airborne. In the second of the 30-minute sessions, Ogden clocked the fifth fastest time with a 1:38.335. Qualifying The number 19 decided not to make any adjustments to the bike set-up from FP2 apart from putting on some new rubber for qualifying. After a series of laps in the mid to low 1:38s Ogden lapped a 1:37.449. By the end of qualifying, this was enough to place him seventh on the grid. Motostar Cadwell Park Race One In good conditions Ogden made a flying start gaining four places in the opening...

Moto3 highs and lows at Thruxton for Scott Ogden

Moto3 highs and lows at Thruxton for Scott Ogden

Off the back of his first ever Moto3 victory at the last round at Brands Hatch, Scott Ogden was feeling positive despite Thruxton not being a track he likes very much. With Britain bathed in sunshine over the weekend Ogden used FP1 to get used the Friday to the fast flowing corners of the 2.4-mile Hampshire circuit. It was here he started in Moto3 in 2017 but he didn’t have the best of starts this weekend, by his high standards. In the afternoon session he gained in confidence reducing his lap time by four-tenths of a second to 1:25.528. This put him 9th quickest at the end of the first day. Qualifying Qualifying was early on Saturday morning and although Ogden has his reservations about the circuit he was keen to make the most of the 30-minute session. He was quickly up to speed a set a lap time of 1:23.802. This put him sixth on the grid for race one although he...

Motostar Knockhill 2018

Motostar Knockhill 2018

After standing on the podium at Oulton Park, Scott Ogden was looking forward to his first visit to Knockhill on the Moto3. The short track posed some problems for the Belton youngster. There are a number of blind corners and the number of overtaking opportunities are restricted. Namely the final hairpin and into turn one having climbed the hill and across the start-finish straight. The weather was unusually bright and warm for the Scottish circuit. Ogden qualified in sixth position for race one and went on to finish in ninth. He felt he had made the wrong tyre choice so decided to switch for a softer compound for race two on Sunday. It proved a good move as he went on to finish the second race just 0.286 seconds from a second podium of the season. Scott Ogden is fourth overall in the Hel Performance British Motostar standard class championship....
