Qualifying: Round 8 qualifications on the kart track took place on Saturday evening after round 7 on the Mosport track. The triple header format is not the best as the racers have to compete on two different tracks on the same weekend. Practice time on the kart tracks is extremely limited with one 20 minute practice session on the Friday and straight into the 20 minute qualification on Saturday evening following a quick 10 minute warm up. Due to the track constraints the competitors are separated into two groups. There is a cut off of sixteen plus four additional at PMP discretion. However, as there were only 22 riders all were able to qualify for the A final. From the start Stacey did not like the kart track and found it difficult to adapt. A crash during qualifying did not help. She was unable to beat her practice time from the Friday evening and eventually qualified in 19th position. Not the best on a tight kart track where grid position is especially important. Toni on the other hand loved the track and it showed. Although she did not put in fast times, she did improve her own time by a second from the practice. More importantly she came back in with a big smile on her face! She would eventually line up in 20th position beside Stacey.
 
Race: Stacey got a good start and gained two positions immediately. At the flag she crossed the line one lap down in 16th position. Toni had a good battle with Karolina Pelc before the later slid off unhurt at turn two. Toni finished the race in 17th position gaining her a few championship points. Both set there best lap times of the weekend during the race. Stacey improved by one second and Toni improved by three seconds.
