  • The final has an absolute protagonist and is called Alex Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME). The Jamaican plays his part perfectly: excellent start from ninth position, takes the lead at the end of the 2nd lap and finishes first alone under the checkered flag. Unfortunately, the victory is not enough to grab the title.

  • In fact, Kean Nakamura Berta (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) disputes an excellent final and finishes second, thanks also to the order given in the last laps by KR Motorsport to Evan Giltaire (VDK Racing - KR - IAME) to let the Japanese pass. . By doing so, the team secures the top two positions in the championship (instead of having Powell first and Nakamura Berta third), but by just two points Nakamura is ahead of Powell in the standings. Giltaire completes the dominance of the KR frames with the third position: this is the first European podium for the Frenchman.

  • Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) never really of the match for the whole weekend, only 21st at the end of the race. The Briton, who arrived in Franciacorta as leader of the standings, does not have the competitiveness necessary to finish in the top positions and, due to the rule of discards, ends third in the championship just three points behind Nakamura and -1 point behind Powell.

  • Good performance by David Walther (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), fourth. The Dane, however, runs straight to the stewards at the end of the race due to a suspicious contact with Nakamura Berta, but there are no penalties in this regard.

  • Undisputed dominator on Friday and Saturday, Enzo Deligny (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) fails to impose himself in the same way and finishes in fifth position, preceding Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), sixth , and Nicolò Cuman (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing), seventh after starting from pole position.

  • Eighth position for Maksim Orlov (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), then behind him we find three good climbers in the standings: James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), from 21st to ninth; Matheus Morgatto (DPK Racing - KR - IAME), from 23rd to 10th; Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), from 22nd to 11th.

  • David Zachary (Sauber Academy - KR - IAME) ranks 12th, ahead of Oscar Pedersen (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), from 25th to 13th, and Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), from 28th ° to 14 °. Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) closes in the Top 15, 15th in fact.

  • Protagonist in the top positions in the first phase of the race, Harley Keeble (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) subsequently drops in the standings up to 17th position. Franciacorta does not bring luck even to Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), 19th.
