  • It had escaped him two weeks ago during Round 2 of the Champions of the Future Euro Series, but this time Nathan Tye (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) takes the victory in Zuera. Solitary escape for the British in the final, thus obtaining the first success in the OK category and with more than 3 seconds advantage over the second classified.

  • Starting from pole position, Arthur Dorison (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) engages in a good duel against his teammate Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) for the entire duration of the race. In the end, it is the Thai who gains the second position, with the Frenchman still on the lowest step of the podium.

  • Taking advantage of the brawl between Dorison and Tarnvanichkul, René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) recovers precious meters on the two drivers and, on the last lap, tries the attack on Dorison, but the Frenchman closes the spaces well. The Dutchman finished fourth, +5 positions compared to the starting grid.

  • Fast also Jules Caranta (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), good at finishing fifth. Zac Drummond (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) finished sixth, ahead of Kirill Kutskov (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), seventh.

  • Two exceptional comebacks for Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) and Miguel Costa (Sauber Academy - KR - IAME). The Norwegian recovers 21 positions in the standings and is eighth, while the Brazilian climbs up 23 positions and hits the tenth position. Between the two “climbers” we find Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), ninth.

  • By 160 thousandths of a second, Taym Saleh (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) was out of the Top 10 and finished 11th in the final. Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex) is 12th, but his result remains uncertain due to yesterday's disqualification (to which he appealed) after the E-F heats. Opaque race for Guillaume Bouzar (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), from second to 13th.

  • Significant comeback also for Andres Cardenas (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) after retiring in the super heat: the Peruvian starts 28th and finishes 15th, behind Thomas Strauven (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), 14th.

  • Due to an accident in the first corners of the first lap, Maxens Verbrugge (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) and Nijs Lenn (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) did not finish the race.
