British Talent Cup: Scott Ogden lifts crown in last-lap thriller at Silverstone

In British Talent Cup, News

SCOTT Ogden has clinched the last-ever British Talent Cup championship title after a battle with Cameron Horsman that went down to the wire.

Just two seasons ago, Ogden was a front-runner in Bemsee’s Team Green Junior Cup championship before stepping into the BSB paddock to join the Hel Performance Motostar Standard ranks, where he currently leads the standings just two points ahead of Horsman.

The two title contenders went into today’s season finale at Silverstone tied on points after Ogden’s mechanical woes yesterday in what was the series’ historic final race in its current form.

But after Jack Nixon stormed through to steal the win from the title protagonists, Ogden scythed through with the finish line in sight to pip Horsman to the championship.

“It’s been an amazing year, I can’t even believe I’m champion,” an emotional Ogden admitted. “I was hoping for top five this year, but I was happy to get a win at the start and just kept my confidence up.

“I was a bit sad yesterday after the unfortunate problem with the clutch, but I’m happy to bounce back. Cameron rode brilliantly all year and it went straight to the last race, last corner.

“I’m really happy to have raced with him and to have a good friend, so hopefully we progress really far in our careers.”
