Scott Ogden comes from North Lincolnshire and his dad Brad Ogden is a multiple podium finisher in the Manx Senior Grand Prix. He started out riding motocross. After six years, he decided to make the switch to circuit racing in 2016 when he rode a Metrakit GP50 and Metrakit GP70. He was third in the GP50 class but became British GP70 champion. The title went to the last round with Ogden needing to win both races. Whilst racing in the FAB Racing British Championship he competed against fellow British Talent Cup rivals Joshua Whatley and Franco Bourne.

In 2017 Ogden made a great start to the season racing in both the Thundersport Superteen series and the Team Green Junior Cup on a Kawasaki Ninja 300. Up against Charlie Farrer, who has also made the British Talent Cup for 2018, these two fought for both championship titles.

However, Ogden had a big crash in June which meant he missed a few races and lost valuable ground on Farrer in both championships.

Then as Ogden had gained sufficient experience for a full national licence they decided to buy a Moto3 Honda NSF250R and switch to the British Motostar standard class. He rode the Moto3 machine for the Microlise Cresswell Racing Team from August 2017.

He went on to compete in six of the twelve standard class rounds and scored points in each of those rounds. The final round at Brands Hatch saw Ogden finish 6th in the first race, just 0.028 seconds off the top five. In the second race, he went one better finishing 5th. However, what was more important Ogden spent a good part of the race battling for third place.
