T-Fox Moreton came into the final round of the championship in fifth place 18 points behind Scott Swann in third position. Swann injured himself in a training accident which kept him out of the racing this weekend but there was still Scott Ogden to overhaul. The Wilson Racing rider was seven points ahead and had been in good form standing on the podium in the last three races to Moreton’s one.

In the first race of the weekend, Ogden had finished second whilst Moreton was sixth. Ogden was now third on 212 points with one race to go. Moreton had 195, a deficit of 17 points.

For race two Ogden lined up 11th on the combined grid and on pole for the standard class. T-Fox Moreton started 19th on the combined grid.

T-Fox made a great start moving into third position in the standard class by the end of the first lap. On the second lap, disaster struck Ogden as he came off in the poor conditions at Graham Hill bend.

T-Fox Moreton was second behind Thomas Strudwick but on lap three overtook the West Sussex rider. Strudwick had already secured the runner-up spot in the championship in race one.

The race was one of attrition as half the standard class field succumbed to the treacherous conditions. T-Fox led the standard class and took his third victory of the season. He finished the race first in the standard class and an incredible fifth in the combined timings. His nearest rival was Cameron Horsman who was 12 seconds back down the road. It was the Londoner’s best result of the season. Completing the podium was Rhys Irwin who like the two ahead had managed to negotiate the slippery conditions to reach the finish line.

Scottish rider Jack Hart had his best result of the year when he came across the line in a superb fourth followed by Ross Turner. Osian Jones was sixth beating Harvey Claridge. It was Claridge’s best result of the season. Charlie Atkins came home eighth with Jodie Fieldhouse and Franco Bourne the only others to finish the race.
