  • The victory had always eluded him, especially in La Conca for Round 3 of the WSK Super Master Series, but now Kean Nakamura Berta (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) can finally celebrate his first success in OK. The Japanese licensed driver pushes his way through his rivals in the early laps, takes the lead and quickly builds a large margin over his rivals. Nakamura Berta can thus easily pass under the checkered flag in first position.

  • Another great protagonist of the final, Enzo Deligny (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) is truly irrepressible. Starting 14th, the Frenchman immediately moves to the inside line and, overtaking after overtaking, reaches second position a few laps from the end. Too bad, however, that Nakamura Berta is too far away, but Deligny can celebrate his birthday in the best possible way.

  • Considered an "outsider" but very fast throughout the Spanish weekend, Ean Eyckmans (EGP Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) is the protagonist of an almost perfect race and conquers the first podium of the category, almost a year after the podium obtained precisely in Zuera in the FIA ​​Karting European Championship OKJ.

  • It seemed to be the perfect moment for Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) after the victory in super heat 1, and indeed it seemed so: at the start, the Brit remains in front, but after a few laps he lets Nakamura Berta and Alex pass. Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), then also Deligny and Eyckmans. Eventually, Turney recovers a fourth position.

  • Too bad also for Powell, who misses the second chance to conquer the much desired first victory in “Senior” after Sarno, in the WSK Super Master Series. The Jamaican licensed driver is still in the Top 5, fifth.

  • Another good performance for Oscar Pedersen (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) after the podium in Portimao in the FIA ​​Karting European Championship. The Swede is sixth, ahead of a good James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), seventh after a comeback of 9 positions.

  • Even Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), after a good start despite the outside line, climbs back in the standings: eighth. Six more positions for Maxim Rehm (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), ninth.

  • A contact at the start in super heat 1 and the subsequent retirement ruined the excellent weekend of Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing). The Italian still brings the final to the end in tenth position. Struck by a technical problem in the qualifying heats, Evan Giltaire (VDK Racing - KR - IAME) takes home an 11th position in the final.

  • Amazing comebacks for Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), Rashid Al Dhaheri (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing), Gabriel Gomez (CRG Racing Team - CRG - IAME) and Keanu Al Azhari (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex). In order, the Finn makes up 13 positions and is 12th; the Emirati of Forza Racing scored a recovery of 18 positions and is 14th; the Brazilian climbs 12 places and is 14th; finally, the Emirati of Tony Kart Racing Team climbs 21 positions and is 15th.

  • Outside the Top 15 we find, however, Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), 16th, Juho Valtanen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), 17th, Maksimilian Popov (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex ), and Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), 18th. Even 30th Tomas Stolcermanis (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing).
