  • An exemplary performance by Thomas Letailleur (Thomas Letailleur - Sodi - TM Racing) in the final. The Frenchman immediately took the lead, but Charles Fiault (Herve Leret - Sodi - TM Racing) responded on the second lap with a courageous overtaking at the first corner. Letailleur keeps his cool and returns to the front on lap seven, never letting go of his position until the checkered flag.

  • On the contrary, Letailleur finds himself in a duel to the limit with Jeroen Bos (Solgat Motorsport - Birel Art - TM Racing): the two meet for the first time, then on the second contact to have the worst is the six-time winner of the 24 Hours Karting of Le Mans, forced to retire.

  • Eric Ramon (CPB Sport - Sodikart - TM Racing) takes the opportunity to pass the second position and controls Bos himself for the rest of the race. The Frenchman precedes the Dutchman by about a tenth of a second and gives Sodikart a double.

  • At the end of the final, the marshals decide for a direct disqualification to Bos in contact with Letailleur and, consequently, the poleman on Friday loses the podium. Thierry Delré (Thierry Delré - Mach 1 - Modena Engines) thus gains the third position, although he does not physically get on the podium after the race.

  • Riccardo Nalon (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) gets a splendid Top 5, fourth classified, after keeping his rivals at bay. Substantial recovery of 11 positions for Johan Renaux (Johan Renaux - Redspeed - TM Racing), fifth.

  • Mirko Mizzoni (Italcorse Racing Team - Italcorse - TM Racing) closes his weekend with the sixth position, ahead of Nick De Brujin (Falcon Racing Team - Falcon - IAME), seventh, Paul David (Paul David - Birel Art - TM Racing) , eighth and Sebastiano De Matteo (Sebastiano De Matteo - Sodi - TM Racing), ninth. Adam Maatougui (Adam Maatougui - CRG - TM Racing) climbs 11 positions in the standings and finishes tenth.

  • Final to forget for Davide Foré (Renda Motorsport - Birel Art - TM Racing): due to a spin in the first laps he falls back in the standings and, like a fury, makes a comeback up to 11th position. Unfortunately for him, a 5 second penalty for the incorrectly positioned front nose puts him back 13 °.
