  • Simone Cunati (Modena Kart – Birel Art – TM Racing) wins the International Super Cup KZ2 after a perfect final. The Italian starts from pole, but has to concede the lead on the second lap to a hard charging Arthur Carbonnel (CPB Sport – Sodi – TM Racing), who, however, will come home in 7th at the end of the race. Two laps are enough for Cunati to retake the lead and, from there until the 25th lap, his race will be only a matter of managing the advantage over the opponents.
  • Behind Cunati, in fact, the fight raged on. Matteo Zanchi (Zanchi Motorsport – Birel Art – TM Racing) pays the highest price and, after climbing up to second place, finishes 6th.
  • Those able to pull off a perfect race are, however, Giuseppe Palomba (Birel ART Racing – Birel ART – TM Racing) and Giacomo Pollini (Formula K Racing Team – Formula K – TM Racing) who started respectively from the seventh and eleventh position on the grid, and manage to get on the podium in second and third position. In particular, Pollini completed an incredible comeback from 45th position in qualifying, after he stopped in the wet prematurely without being able to complete a fast lap.
  • Fourth place for Leonardo Marseglia (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Racing) who precedes a brilliant Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), able to recover 12 positions from the starting grid.
  • From 8th to 13th position we find drivers able to pull off great comebacks: Petit Hubert (CPB Sport – Sodi – TM Racing), who improves his starting positions by 11 places, Senna Van Walstijn (CPB Sport – Sodi – TM Racing), +16 positions and best lap for him, Viktor Gustavsson (Leclerc By Lennox Racing – Birel ART – TM Racing), +10 positions for one of the protagonists of the weekend who, however, pays too much penalty in the heats, Daniel Vasile (DR – DR – Modena Engines), +13, Marco Tormen (FD Motors – Prague – TM Racing), +10, and Filippo Berto (Emilia Kart – Birel Art – TM Racing).
  • It was a final to forget for Lorenzo Giannoni (CPB Sport – Sodi – TM Racing) who had led the intermediate classification until Saturday evening. In dry conditions the Italian has never been as competitive as on wet.
