This Nippon Challenge event was mixed with the Tricolore Trophy for qualification. This resulted in a large grid of 39 cars! Karen qualified 21st from this mixed group which meant she would start in 8th position in the Nippon Challenge only Race 1.

Karen got a great start and jumped from 8th to 4th by Redgate Corner. However, cold rear tyres caused a spin down the Craner Curves. It could have ended very badly, but luckily the car wasn't too damaged and Karen recovered from last to finish 11th overall.

Race 2 was a mixed affair with Nippon and Triclore cars racing together. Karen started in 20th position, but seemed to struggle and finished the race in 22nd and 2nd in class within the Nippon Challenge.
