Fenton Seabright got his first ever European Talent Cup weekend off to a superb start. The Wilson Racing rider secured a spot in the middle of the front row for tomorrow’s two 16 lap races.

The riders were split into two groups because of the number of entries. They were also faced with a wet track after a shower in the morning. Unduanted Seabright managed to set the fifth best lap time in group B, having never ridden on this track before this weekend.

Conditions were better in the afternoon but the track was still damp. Seabright challenged for the top slot throughout the forty-minute session. Having topped the timesheet at one point in qualifying two Seabright found himself down in sixth with around five minutes to go.

On his final flying lap Seabright managed a 1:50.263 which saw him top the group. Although he initially finished 0.61 seconds behind the original group winner that rider was later disqualified from Q2 as their bike was under the legal weight.

Seabright lines up alongside Jose Antonio Rueda who managed a 1:49 in the other group to secure pole position.
