Stacey wins Race 2

 The CBR125s were out for the first practice. The track was wet although the rain had stopped. Stacey completed the warmup session in 3rd
place. Twenty minutes before the race the rain started again. Stacey lined up on the second row in 5th place. By the first turn Stacey had moved up to 3rd. Half a lap later she hit the front, closely followed by Eric Green. Both eased away but by half distance Scott Lingelbach and Karolina Plec started to close the gap. The track was very wet and and in the same lap both Scott and Karolina crashed out. Scott managed to get going again. That left Stacey and Eric out front. On lap seven Eric made a pass after the long sweeping right but two turns later lost the front end and went down, fortunately uninjured. That left Stacey alone with a large lead. She rode a safe race to see the chequered flag for her first ever win with a comfortable margin of 27 seconds. History continued to be made this weekend as Stacey became the first girl to both make the podium and win a CBR125 National race. A well deserved result for all her hard work. The podium was rounded out by Seth Van Donen and David McKay. Congratulations to both

Finally a big thank you to all the corner workers who volunteer their time. It can't be much fun to stand out in the rain all day, but the racing couldn't be done without them. Thanks also to Franklyn, Deivi, Mike and Robert.
