  • After a skilful management of the weekend, Emanuele Olivieri (Formula K Serafini – IPK – TM Racing) concludes with the icing on the cake. Thanks to the victory in the pre-final, the Italian driver sprints well from pole and does not lose his temper when he is overtaken by Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME) on the second lap. In fact, the Formula K standard bearer Serafini immediately returns to the lead during the next lap and triumphs with a sprint finish. Olivieri is also overtaken on the last lap, but returns the favor to a few corners from the checkered flag with a courageous maneuver and conquers a success which, after the podium obtained in the first round in Lonato, earned him the provisional leadership of the championship.
  • After having imposed himself in his pre-final, Christian Sanabria Costya (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing) closes in second position, just 83 thousandths from Olivieri, and also signs the fastest lap. The Parolin Motorsport driver thus moves to third place in the provisional championship standings.
  • An amazing Vladimir Ivannikov (Drago Corse Racing Team – EKS – TM Racing) climbs on the third step of the podium, recovering five positions from the start and gaining two positions on the last lap, managing very well in the fight.
  • After dominating both Friday and Saturday, poleman Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME) finishes second in the pre-final, behind Olivieri, and fourth in the final. The winner of the first round then finds himself second in the championship.
  • Behind the standard bearer of the Babyrace Driver Academy comes Alfie Slater (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Racing), who is fighting for the podium and thus concludes a weekend always lived at the top.
  • Completing a top six in just 601 thousandths of a second is Davide Bottaro (AVracing – Parolin -TM Racing), who had occupied the second position until the last lap.
  • Matias Orjuela (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing) crosses the finish line in seventh place with a comeback of three positions. On the other hand, Iacopo Martinese (CMT – Parolin – TM Racing) lost one position compared to the start, finishing eighth.
  • The top ten was closed by an excellent David Cosma-Cristofor (Gulstar Racing – KR – IAME) and Dean Hoogendoorn (Kidix – Alonso Kart – IAME), who lost ground after starting fifth and taking second place during the first lap.
  • Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME) wins 11th place and after taking the podium in the first round he finds himself fourth in the championship. The Thai driver precedes Griffin Peebles (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME), Juliusz Ociepa (Formula K Serafini – IPK – TM Racing) and Sandro Sanchez Perez (CRG Racing Team – CRG – TM Racing). Ociepa and Perez gain 11 and 16 positions respectively with respect to the start and thus conclude a weekend that began respectively with the 44th and 67th times in qualifying.
  • Oliver Kinnmark (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing) completes the top 15 and arrives just ahead of Niklas Schaufler (Emme Racing – EKS – TM Racing).
