Fenton Seabright took the first British Talent Cup win of the weekend as he destroyed the field to cross the line more than 13 seconds ahead of Cameron Horsman.
But all eyes were on championship leader Scott Ogden, who made a heroic charge from the back of the grid to cross the line third and bolster his championship hopes.
Ogden had crashed early in qualifying and had only been able to set the 19th quickest time, leaving him languishing down on the back row while Seabright lined up on pole with Ogden’s title rival Horsman leading the second row.
At the start, it was Brian Hart who got the best getaway from third on the grid and led into turn one but it didn’t take Seabright long to move ahead before the end of the lap.
Meanwhile, Ogden had enjoyed a strong opening lap, moving from 19th to seventh and was up to fourth by the start of lap three.
But up front, Seabright was already pulling away and he quickly built a lead. Hart crashed out on lap two and as Seabright galloped off ahead, the battle for second became a scrap between Horsman, Ogden, Jack Nixon and Scott Swann.
With the leader out of sight, the battle for second ran throughout the race, with Horsman and Ogden battling for second. At the flag, Horsman was the rider with the edge as he came home second, some 0.281s ahead of Ogden.
Nixon was the best of the rest as he led Swann home, with Charlie Farrer sixth and Torin Collins seventh as Jack Hart, Charlie Atkins and Corey Tinker rounded out the top 10.
