Qualifying: A crash in the first trackday session on Thursday got the weekend off on the wrong foot. Stacey soldiered on with a swollen right wrist. On Friday morning her wrist was bruised and painful so she went to the local A&E to get it checked. Nothing showed up on the x-ray and she made it back to the circuit five minutes before her practice session. She got on track and showed her determination by posting the 6th fastest time. Qualifying was the last session of the day. Again Stacey gritted her teeth and got on with the job, just missing the front row by 0.1 second to finish 5th. However, a post session technical infraction with the air filter meant she was penalised postions on the grid and will now start the first race from 7th.

Saturday warm up: With a new air filter fitted, Stacey got on track for the warm up. Fortunately her wrist is improving, but again Stacey showed determination by setting a faster time than her qualifying session. Rising as high as third a one point, she finished the session in 5th position. Now on to the race..............
