  • An unexpected victory, at least before the start of the final, for Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex). The Koski Motorsport driver is as shrewd as a fox from the inside line to the start and, in just two and a half laps, takes the lead. From there, no one can catch up with him anymore and Matveev wins his second success within 7 days, after Round 1 of the FIA ​​Karting European Champions in Portimao.

  • The undisputed ruler of the weekend Nathan Tye (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) narrowly missed out on his first victory in OKJ. The Briton does not contain Matveev and fails to bridge the gap with the winner in the final laps. However, the second position is an excellent result for the next round of the FIA ​​Karting European Championship.

  • After a difficult start from the outside line, Anatholy Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) took home a good third position, finishing 1,230 seconds behind Matveev. Leen Nijs (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) barely touches the lowest step of the podium, fourth on the finish line.

  • In the Top 3 in the early stages of the race, Miguel Costa (Sauber Academy - KR - IAME) and Tiziano Monza (DPK Racing - KR - IAME) lose pace in the second half of the race. The Brazilian finishes fifth, while the licensed Singapore driver slips ninth. On the contrary, Andres Cardenas (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) and Martin Molnar (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) continue their comebacks started during the qualifying heats and grab the sixth and seventh position respectively.

  • Super heat 2 winner, Jan Przyrowski (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) struggles to keep up with the fastest and finishes eighth. Adam Hideg (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) reaches the Top 10 and finishes tenth.

  • Notable comebacks for Taym Saleh (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) and Tobias Clausen (Falcon Racing Team - Falcon - IAME): the German gains 13 positions and is 11th, while the Dane starts 28th and finishes 14th.

  • Oleksandr Bondarev (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) crosses the finish line in ninth position, but a 5 second penalty for the incorrectly installed front fairing drops him 12th. Behind him is René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), 13th.

  • Second at the end of the super heats, Jules Caranta (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) hastily falls back in the standings and ends only 19th, with 5 seconds more on the race time for an incorrect maneuver.
