  • An exciting duel staged by Wojciech Woda (Poland) and Lisa Billard (France) in the second half of the final reserved for the FIA Karting Academy Trophy. The French girl, who started seventh and with the number plate spoiler sticker, remains constantly very close to the Pole, but she can't find the push necessary to overtake him. Perfect performance for Woda, first in qualifying and author of three victories in the qualifying heats.

  • After taking the lead for a few laps in the early stages of the race, Hugo Martí (Spain) closed the final in sixth position: just enough for the Spaniard to become champion. His rival Max Walton finished only 25th, also thanks to a 10-second penalty for causing two accidents.

  • First podium in the championship for Markas Silkunas (Lithuania), able to hold on to the third position from mid-race onwards. The Lithuanian also finishes third in the general standings. At the foot of the Top 3 we find Arthur Broughan (New Zealand), from ninth to fourth, and Romeo Haagh (Denmark), from eighth to fifth.

  • In battle for the top positions, Rocco Coronel (Netherlands) is seventh on the finish line. Six-place comeback for Harry Bartle (United Kingdom), eighth, followed in the standings by Santino Panetta (Argentina), ninth, and Lorenzo Camos (Angola), tenth.

  • The race of Marius Barry-Berg ends after a few laps, one of the main contenders for the title on the eve of the Cremona round. Too bad for the host Cristian Tonalini (Italy), who also retired when starting from fourth place on the grid.
