Before Formula One[edit | edit source]

1958[edit | edit source]

Stacey made his first Formula One race during the 1959 season, after being signed with Lotus as a third driver. He was able to race his first race in the 1958 British Grand Prix, but did not finish when the car overheated on lap 19.

1959[edit | edit source]

Stacey continued as Lotus's third driver for the 1959 season, racing two races.

Stacey raced his first race of the season in the 1959 British Grand Prix, placing 8th position. This would be the only race finish of his career. His race at the 1959 United States Grand Prix, where he experienced a clutch failure on lap 2.

1960[edit | edit source]

Stacey was invited to be the third driver for the team again, starting the 1960 season at 1960 Argentine Grand Prix and racing in three other events in the season, none of which he completed.

Death[edit | edit source]

Stacey was killed during the 1960 Belgian Grand Prix after a bird flew into his face on lap 25. Stacey left the track on the Burnenville corner, taking Chris Bristow out of the race as well and crashed through a barbed-wire fence. His car then went up an embankment and fell into a field.

Stacey did not survive the accident, but it is unclear whether he died from the impact of the bird striking his face or the accident. Bristow also died on the track, only minutes within Stacey.
