14-year-old Cameron Horsman took his fifth win of the year on board his EE125 machine, after a dominant three days at Oulton Park this weekend.
Cameron headed into the ninth round of the Championship full of confidence and belief, after another positive weekend last time out at Cadwell Park.
The free practice sessions saw the Lewisham man fly out of the blocks, picking up from where he left off at Cadwell last time out. He was only two tenths behind the fastest 125 Josh Owens in the first practice, and he then topped the 125 class in the second session by seventh tenths, and 10th overall.
Qualifying one on Saturday morning saw the riders have to work on a damp circuit, which Cameron handled well posting the 5th fastest 125 time, but knowing full well the track would dry for the afternoon session.
Q2 would see Cameron take the 125 pole position by four tenths of a second after setting a time of 1:49.600, eight second faster than his qualifying time set earlier in the season, lining him up in 16th position for Sunday’s race.
From the leap off the line in Sunday’s race, Cameron got a fantastic start and started to pick his way through the riders in front. As he made his way into 12th position Cameron set his sights on the group ahead, but as he posted his fastest lap of the weekend at 1:48.006, he just couldn’t pip his way into 11th place and took the flag in 12th, also taking the 125cc win by 20 seconds, his fifth of the season.
After the race Cameron said: “That was mega, I’m so happy to take another win and it brings me closer to third in the Championship. This weekend has shown how far I’ve come on this bike, my qualifying time was eight second quicker than the first time we were here in May when it was my first time on the bike.”
“I’m really please to take a fifth win and I want I want to thank my team and family, as always without them I wouldn’t be here.”
Cameron now sits in fourth place in the HEL British Motostar Championship on 178 points, only 35 behind Mark Clayton in third place.
Cameron now has a two week break from action before heading to the Cathedral Of Speed of Assen in Holland for round 10 of the Championship.
