The Swede completes a perfect race at the end of an equally perfect weekend, in which he wins all the heats and takes the top of the standings with full score.

    • The final of first round of the FIA ​​Karting European Championship KZ2 kicks off without one of the great protagonists of the weekend, Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), winner of one heat also in the morning, but disqualified together with Kristijan Habulin (TB Kart - TB Kart - TM Racing) and Francesco Comanducci (TB Kart - TB Kart - TM Racing) after having failed to show up in time (a matter of a few seconds for Albanese) in the pre-grid.

    • Viktor Gustavsson (Leclerc By Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing) takes a commanding win, crossing at the finish with a lead of over 6 seconds. The Swede leaves Adria with 35 points and the status of favorite for the title.

    • Simone Cunati (Modena Kart - Birel ART - TM Racing) manages to defend the second place from the attacks of Giuseppe Palomba (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), who tries all the tricks in the book to find a gap in the last laps, but he has to settle for third place.

    • Paavo Tonteri (SC Performance - Tony Kart - Vortex), fourth, also tries to take advantage of the duel between Palomba and Cunati, but fails to attack the two Italians. The Finn precedes a very good Tom Leuillet (Praga Racing Team - Praga - TM Racing), who completes a comeback of 5 positions, from the tenth position, on a track where overtaking seems to be a taboo.

    • Davide De Marco (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), sixth, wins an intense battle with Leonardo Marseglia (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), seventh, and Arthur Carbonnel (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing), eighth at the finish, but the victim of a three-second penalty for violation of the noise limit that makes him fall back to 13th place.

    • The last three places available in the top ten are occupied by Giacomo Pollini (Formula K Racing Team - Formula K- TM Racing), Hubert Petit (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing), able to gain 5 positions at the start and another three in the first lap, and Filippo Berto (Emilia Kart - Birel ART - TM Racing).

    • From 11th to 15th position we find Jean Luyet (DEL Motorsport - CRG - TM Racing), Senna Van Walstjin (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing), Arthur Carbonnel, Andrea Dalè (Nuova 3M - Birel ART - TM Racing) and Danel Stell (Novalux - Lenzokart - TM Racing).

    • The names on the retiree list, on the other hand, are those of Leonardo Bizzotto (NGM Motorsport - Formula K - TM Racing), Daniel Vasile (DR - DR - Modena Engines) and Mattia Sergio Limena (Paolo Limena - Kosmic - TM Racing).
