Ardigò (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) gota way better than Paolo De Conto (CRG – CRG – TM Racing) who was then passed by Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex). The two team mates then battled as Puhakka then passed Ardigò.

De conto, third, passed Ardigò at the first chicane with very light contact but not losing any time to the two Tony Kart drivers. At this point De conto passed also Puhakka who was then third behind Ardigò who appeared to match the pace of De conto, before then losing ground. Marco returning to the track after a long layoff due to injury.

In the last part of the race Puhakka and Ardigò made contact in a tense passing manouvre which resulted in the Finn spinning, losing ground to finish 9th.

The beneficiary was Bas Lammers (Lion Kart Factory Racing Team – Lion Kart – TM Racing), who only lost a podium place right on the line to Patrik Hajek (Kosmic Racing DPT – Kosmic – Vortex) who finished third in his first race this season.


Lorenzo Travisanutto (KR Motor Sport – KR – Parilla) started last in the final after he was pushed off the track by Valtanen in the prefinal who was later penalised. Luigi Coluccio (Birel Art Racing – BirelArt – TM Racing) gota way well despite being on the outside but was out after an incident with Jonny Edgar (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing), who moved into second behind Nicklas Nielsen (KSM Schumacher Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex).
Third therefore was Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG – CRG – TM Racing), who also made contact with Coluccio, followed by Noah Milell (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Zak Maloney (Ricky Flynn Motrsport – FA Kart – Vortex).

Nielesen pulled away, but Edgar was reeling him in with tremendous speed. When he was right behind him it appeared as though he had the speed, but, possibly to damage due to contact with Coluccio but then he and Maloney could only follow Nielsen.

Maloney was not content to follow though, as he passed Edgar and then a few laps later, Nielsen ran wide to rejoin ahead of Hiltbrand who on the final corner get a better run to finish behind Maloney and Edgar.


Sensation off the start as Kirill Smal (Tony Kart – Vortex), leader of the championship who started out of pole, went wide at the first turn taking Zak O Sullivan (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – FA Kart  – Vortex) along with him. Small coming across the line at the end of the lap in 5th and ultimately finishing in ninth.

At the front a pack was forming involving Paul Aron (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – FA Kart  – Vortex), David Hadrien (Kosmic Kart Racing Department – Kosmic – Vortex), Laurens Van Hoepen (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), Gabriel Bortoleto (CRG – CRG – TM Racing) and Taylor Barnard (KR Motor Sport – KR – Parilla) who was in fourth when the Tony Kart driver ran wide losing a few positions.

Bortoleto was fast and took over the lead, and one by one they crossed the line in this order: David, Bortoleto, Aron and Barnard. With Bortoleto able to make a pass on Aron in the final corner in a move that pushed the limits. Following in fifth position was Dino Beganovic (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex), Gabriele Minì (Parolin Racing Kart – Parolin – Parilla), Georgi Dimitrov (Team Oakes – Exprit – Vortex), Norton Andreasson (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Smal.after the heats, and David Hadrien (Kosmic Kart Racing Department – Kosmic – Vortex), 7th.


The race was over virtually at the start when Andrea Antonelli (Energy Corse – Energy – TM Racing) who started first, came across the line half a second ahead of his closest challengers by the end of the first lap, that being Martinius Stenshorne (Parolin Racing Kart- Parolin – TM Racing).

The Norwegian made a great start despite being on the outside and was able to avoid the battles around him. He fought with Kirill Kutskov (Energy Corse – Energy – TM Racing) who, starting out of third position slotted into second immediately behind Antonelli.

Stenshorne was able to pass Kutskov and recorded a string of fastest laps to get to within half a second of the Energy driver.
