Cameron Horsman took maximum points in this weekend’s second British Talent Cup race, as rival Fenton Seabright crashed out yards from the finish line.
And it was another masterclass of damage limitation for points leader Scott Ogden, who made a charge through the pack from 19th on the grid to cross the line second ahead of his old club racing rival Charlie Farrer.
Seabright, who started from pole, took the lead at the start ahead of Brian Hart and Scott Swann, but within half a lap Horsman had moved up to third from a second row start.
At the back, Ogden got a clean getaway but wasn’t able to make up as much ground as quickly as he had in the previous race, ending the opening lap in 15th position.
Horsman took the lead from Seabright on lap three and the pair eked out a small gap to the pack behind, which was being led by Farrer from Jack Nixon and Scott Swann.
At the same time, Ogden was quickly reeling in his rivals, scything his way through the pack to move up to fourth, before passing Farrer for third on lap eight.
But with a six second gap ahead to Seabright and Horsman, Ogden knew his hopes of climbing any further up weren’t looking good and had all but settled for third.
However, on the final lap, Seabright finally made the move on Horsman going into Brundle to take the lead and looked on course for his third win in a row until an error with the finish line in sight result in him crashing out hard.
Horsman had a clear run to the win while Ogden took a surprise second, continuing his run of finishing on the podium in every race this year while a delighted Farrer was all smiles after banking his first BTC podium.
