Scott Impresses at the British Talent Cup Pre Season Test

Scott ended the two day pre season test at the Valencia Ricardo Tormo circuit as the fastest rider, closely followed by Cameron Horsman.

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...

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

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. Scott struggled to find a setting that worked and despite the efforts of the Talent Cup technicians, it resulted in initially no front grip and today no rear grip and the crash. Scott is fine and heads to Spain for the Red Bull Rookies Selection event at Guadix tomorrow until Thurs. many thanks to the Talent Cup Team, to our sponsors and friends and to Dorna for the images.

Oulton Park BSB Double Podium for Scott

Oulton Park BSB Double Podium for Scott

A good first race day at Oulton Park with the Wilson Racing Team. Scott qualified well in wet conditions and was pipped to the 🏁 today by Scott Swann. The pair of them swapped positions continuously for the last few laps and the gap was 0.027s at the flag on a drying track. Scott will start on the third row of the grid in 9th overall but fastest standard bike from today’s race.👍🏻👍🏻Great pics by Davis Watson from yesterday’s very wet qualifying and today’s race.

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...
