  • No one had warned the karting world that, on his debut in OK, Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) would simply be head and shoulders above all for the whole weekend. And the reality is that not even the Latvian standard bearer himself explains how he managed to lead like this. After having also triumphed in Super Heat 1, the young rookie starts well from pole, always remains in command and ends the monologue that lasted a whole weekend undisturbed, in which no driver has ever managed to put the wheels in front of him. Stolcermanis crosses the finish line almost five seconds ahead of his direct rival and, complete with a fast lap, thus wins the first victory in the premier class of single-speed karting as well as the second success of the season for the Energy Corse team.

  • Thanks to his skills and the strength of his experience, Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) ends a hard-fought final in second position, but is then relegated to the 13th by a ten-second penalty due to overtaking with yellow flags. Thus he inherits the silver medal Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), author of an excellent race.

  • Reigning OKJ world champion Kean Berta Nakamura (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) takes advantage of the penalty inflicted on Turney to gain the third step of the podium, reaffirming his role at the top of the standings.

  • After dominating Super Heat 2, the OK world champion Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) closes a final slightly below expectations in fourth place, even hampered by a complicated start, which sees him slip from the second box on the grid to sixth place.

  • Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), fifth, Joel Bergstrom (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing), sixth, Rafael Modonese (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), seventh, Luka Sammalisto (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), eighth, Rintaro Sato (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), ninth, and Keanu Al Azhari (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), tenth, are exceptional and in great comeback from the start.

  • Starting fourth, Rashid Al Dhaheri (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) went off the track due to a contact and returned to 27th place, only to recover up to 11th. Immediately behind him comes Maxim Rehm (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), who gains nine positions from the start after retiring in Super Heat 1 while he was in sixth place.

  • Gabriel Gomez (CRG Racing Team - CRG - IAME) remains competitive and passes ninth at the checkered flag, but is relegated to 14th place by a five-second penalty due to incorrect maneuvering. Harley Keeble (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), 17th, and a protagonist of the weekend such as Alex Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), are also deprived of a result in the top ten following several penalties, who succeeds even to move to second position in the first half of the race, only to slip up to eighth place and be relegated to 18th.

  • Matteo De Palo (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) completes the top 15, just ahead of Liu Ruiqi (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex).

  • The final of the reigning OKJ European champion Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) is, instead, compromised by a contact on the first lap.

  • Arvid Lindblad (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is unfortunately unable to participate today following the injury sustained in yesterday’s accident. From TKART best wishes for a speedy recovery.
