  • Niels Tröger (Maranello SRP Factory Team Maranello - TM Kart) won the champion title in the FIA Karting World Cup, for KZ2. After a Super Heat which ended in 2nd place and which gave him pole position for the Final, he firmly maintained the lead of the race from start to finish, keeping his rivals at a distance. Great result at home for the German driver.

  • Srl - KR – IAME) tried to ruin his party. After several laps in which he follows his direct opponent closely, giving the impression of managing the gap to preserve the engine and tires for the final laps, he loses ground slightly towards the end of the race, taking a delay of around 1.5" at the finish line and definitively saying goodbye to the chances of winning the title.

  • The European vice-champion Daniel Vasile ( Birel ART Racing Srl - Birel Art - TM Kart) finished with an excellent 3rd place, at the end of a weekend that was not exactly the easiest. The bronze medal, starting from 6th place on the grid, is however a result to be considered positive in what can be defined as the best season in the Romanian driver's career.

  • 4th position for Thomas Imbourg (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Kart), followed by his teammate Jean Nomblot (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Kart) who completes an incredible comeback from 15th to 5th place.

  • Unlucky ending for Kean Nakamura-Berta (Prema Racing Srl - KR - IAME). Starting from 4th place on the grid, he was hit on the first lap by Matteo Zanchi (Zanchi Motorsport - CRG - TM Kart) who tried to overtake him. Having restarted 21st after the accident, he began a great comeback that took him up to 6th place.

  • For Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse Srl - Energy - TM Kart) was certainly not a weekend to remember, despite the good 7th place in the final, recovering from 13th position at the start. An absolutely uphill weekend for him too, which started in a complicated way starting from Friday, when he had only obtained the 27th time in qualifying.

  • He is followed by Alessio Piccini ( Birel ART Racing Srl - Birel Art - TM Kart), 8th, and Genis Civico Espona (Modena Kart ASD - Parolin - TM Kart), 9th. Adrian Malheiro (CRG - CRG - TM Kart) closed 10th, with 14 positions recovered .

  • In a rather eventful Final, especially in its initial phases, two of today's most anticipated protagonists paid the price: Maksim Orlov (Modena Kart ASD - Parolin - TM Kart) and Daniel Stell (Dörr Motorsport - KR - IAME ) . In fact, both were forced to retire due to technical problems in the early stages of the race, immediately excluding them from the fight for the title.

  • On the other hand, the initial chaos benefited from several riders, who were good at exploiting the opportunity to move up many positions, obtaining good placements. The best to take advantage of this are certainly Moritz Ebner (Drago Corse Racing Team - Drago Corse - TM Kart), who started 31st and finished 13th, Valentino Fritsch (Birel ART Racing KSW - Birel Art - TM Kart), who goes from 33rd to 14th, and Lukas Schächer ( Haak Motorsport - KR - TM Kart), who recovered 20 positions, closing the final in 16th place.
