Wilson Racing 2018 season review

The British Motostar standard class season has now finished but you can still cheer on three of our riders in the final round of the British Talent Cup on the 16 – 18 November 2018 at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia. Scott Ogden, Charlie Atkins and Jack Hart will again experience the MotoGP circus that traditionally ends the season in Valencia Spain. Whilst the circuit will be new to Ogden, Atkins and Hart rode there in 2017 in the European Talent Cup and spent a good part of the race battling against each other. All three riders will be hoping they have done enough to convince the organisers’ of the British Talent Cup they should be kept in the championship for 2019. Looking back at the British Motostar Championship 2018 Scott Ogden had a fantastic rookie season. The rider from Belton, near Doncaster narrowly missed out on third position overall with 212 points.

Wilson Racing return to action at Knockhill

Wilson Racing return to action at Knockhill

It’s now two months since the last round of the Hel Performance British Motostar championship but it feels a lot longer. Round three is at the Scottish circuit of Knockhill in Fife, the local track of Wilson Racing’s Jack Hart. During the break in the Motostar championship Jack was one of three Wilson Racing riders busy in the British Talent Cup. Jack said, “I made a big jump with the bike getting my best results in the championship so far.” The young Scot has also spent time training. Firstly, on his CRF with Rory Skinner and then a long weekend at the circuit de Ribera. Unfortunately, some unseasonal weather meant he didn’t get much track time in Spain. Jack has also been working hard at the gym and now school is finished he is happy to report he should have even more time for bikes. Jake Clark also went to the Spanish circuit where he received some training from Circuimoto. Athletic Performance Training have continued...
