Who is Storm Stacey?
Making a start: Storm got his first bike when he was three years old – and with a natural talent for handling bikes, he took to the sport like a duck to water.
In 2012 he asked his dad if he could go racing, so started out in minimoto on a borrowed machine and loved it. His own bike quickly followed and in 2013, his first full season, he scored 21 pole positions and 21 race wins between the two championships he entered.
That year he went on to win the National Minibike Road Racing Championship (NMRRC) and drew level at the top of the Fab Racing Championship.
International experience: With a real shot at a pro career beckoning, Storm needed as much experience as possible, which has seen him taking to tracks in the USA and Spain (including the likes of Aragon, Valencia and Jerez) , rubbing shoulders with stars of the sport as well as the young racers who would be his peers as he progressed.
By 2014 Storm was taking part in pit bike supermoto racing and flat tracking – which brought him into contact with the likes of Troy Bayliss and British road racing hero and TV presenter, Guy Martin.
2015 saw a return to Spain, taking part in the Spanish Cup, and with the backing of Kenny Noyes and Brad Baker, Storm had the opportunity to take part in the AMA Dirt Track Nationals event, in Illinois, USA. With the loan of a bike and mechanics to look after him he had a great taste of American flat track on mile, half mile, indoor short circuit and TT circuits, racing in the modified 250cc class and coming away with some impressive results for someone so young.
Impact on the short track: Storm went on to build on his impressive early career with a team place for a season of short track road racing in 2016, achieving an incredible fifth place finish that year, even in the face of great personal tragedy.
A fresh start in 2017 on a well-prepared KTM machine saw Storm scrap his way through a highly competitive MOTO 3 class, racing all over the UK and in the Netherlands, to secure a hugely impressive third step of the podium for the season, while still being the youngest rider in the field.
What next? Storm has a natural talent with motorbike competition of all kinds. A natural affinity for the machines and a rock solid self belief in his abilities make him destined for success – but he needs the team and the sponsors behind him.
