TFR / Suzuki race series - 1st podium for Stacey

posted Jul 26, 2010, 4:51 PM by Statoni Racing
With not enough CBR125s to make up their own class, Stacey and Cedric Martineau were entered in the Lightweight category. This put them up against much faster motorcycles, but the objective was to get some track time. Stacey started the day where she left off in the 1m10s bracket. In the second session she reduced that by a further second to end up with 1:09.40. The qualifying session started early, unknown to most of the riders. It was also reduced in half, again information not passed on the the riders. So qualifying consisted of a total of 3 minutes. It would not have changed the gird positions anyway so no big impact.
 
The Lighweights were run as a second wave along with the SV650s. Stacey crossed the line in fourth not far behind Cedric. A disqualification moved her up to third for her first ever podium. An excellent end to a good weekend.
 
Special thanks to Ian Lulham for helping make some parts for the motorcycle before the race weekend.
