Tires: LeCont

  • The OKJ final starts with the title already assigned to Ugo Ugochukwu (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), the new European Champion of the category. His most direct opponent, Arvid Lindblad (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), cannot reach the American in any case due to the scraps.
  • Lindblad, however, remains the  satisfaction of winning the race, a result built on overtaking Ugochukwu scored in lap 4. From that moment Arvid begins an unstoppable ride.
  • Ugochukwu, on the other hand, has a more complex race: when the American is overtaken by Lindblad, he is also overtaken by Harley Keeble (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and ends up in third position. A close fight then begins between Keeble, Ugochukwu, Martinius Stenshorne (Rosberg Racing Academy – KR – IAME), followed, not too far, by Maxim Rehm (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), Bruno Del Pino (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Sonny Smith (Pantano Team – KR – IAME).
  • In the end it is Ugochukwu who stands out, conquering the second position in front of rookie Keeble, for the first time on the podium in an international race.
  • In fourth position we find Smith, followed by Karol Pasiewicz (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) who initially finishes in 12th position and then comes back up to fifth place, also scoring the best lap of the race.
  • Followed in order by Stenshorne, Del Pino, Evan Giltaire (Sodikart – Sodi – TM Racing), Aiden Neate (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Alfio Spina (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), who closes the top 10 after a comeback of 10 positions.
  • Never fighting for the title this weekend, 16th in the final, but still third in the championship, is Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex).
