A very competitive qualifying session has set the OK Junior category. In a 103 drivers entry list, all top drivers waited around 4 minutes to get into the track, followed by 2-3 laps getting out of traffic to set 1-2 quick laps. For some this worked out, for many others it did not.

Surprisingly the Singaporean driver Akshay Bohra (Parolin/TM Racing/Vega) from KR Motorsport took the pole position with a lap-time of 53.754 seconds. In a 108 drivers entry, one of the drivers contenders, Willam MacIntyre (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega) from Tony Kart Racing Team saw how thing started to get complicated as he wasn’t able to set a lap time so the Briton will have to make a great comeback in the heats if he want to get access to the final.
