Tires: Vega
  • Always at the top throughout the weekend, Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – Kosmic – Vortex) lands the winning leg in the final. After having also triumphed in the pre-final, the reigning world champion starts from the second position on the grid and takes the lead on the second lap, and then begins to do what he does best: hammer. Ricky Flynn Motorsport’s standard bearer does not give in to the pressure of his direct rival and takes home a success that makes him move up to second place in the provisional championship standings.

  • A surprising Mark Kastelic (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing) crosses the finish line just four tenths from Slater. Starting fourth and finishing sixth, the Slovenian driver passes second during the seventh lap and even seems to be able to attack Slater, but then he has to settle for the silver medal.

  • Another Ricky Flynn Motorsport driver, Enea Frey (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – Kosmic – Vortex) climbs on the third step of the podium, thus concluding an excellent weekend.

  • Kirill Kutskov (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) gains five positions compared to the start, finishing fourth and confirming himself as a protagonist of the category. Right behind him comes Harley Keeble (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), who after winning his pre-final and starting from pole struggles to find his pace on a track that is much slower than in the morning. In any case, also considering the second place obtained in the first round in Lonato, the Tony Kart Racing Team bishop gains the provisional leadership of the championship.

  • Good performance also for Keeble’s teammate, James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), who closed a positive weekend in sixth place. Alex Powell’s balance sheet (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) is a little less rosy, losing two positions from the start and finishing seventh.

  • The Mercedes protégé precedes the Parolin duo made up of Enzo Deligny (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing) and Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing), who both recover three positions from the start. Gustaw Wisniewski (Sauber Orlen Karting Team – KR – IAME) recovers six, closing the top ten.

  • The fresh winner of the second round of the OKJ European championship Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) crosses the finish line in seventh place, but is then relegated to 11th by a five-second penalty due to the front spoiler in the incorrect position.

  • After dominating both Friday and Saturday, poleman David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex) slips back in the pre-final, which ends in tenth place. In the final, the Koski Motorsport standard bearer sets the fastest lap in the race, proof of his competitiveness, but he does not go beyond 15th position.

  • After the podium won in the first round, Francesco Marenghi (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME) crosses the finish line in 15th place, only to be relegated to 18th due to a five-second penalty for the front spoiler in the incorrect position. The driver of Team Driver Racing Kart therefore finds himself ninth in the championship. On the other hand, the winner of the first round Rashid Al Dhaheri (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing) is forced to retire, slipping to third place in the championship.
