  • C- With a final that was anything but simple, Davide Forè (Renda Motorsport - Sodi -TM Kart) won the title of winner of the FIA Karting Int'l Masters Cup in the KZ2 Masters category. After an excellent start and after having built a decent gap towards his rivals, he was forced to defend himself, in the final laps, from Manetti's attacks. The two give life to a breathtaking duel which sees the Renda Motorsport driver take victory by just 15 thousandths.

  • Amazing race by Alessandro Manetti (CRG - CRG -TM Kart)! Starting from third position on the grid, he remained stuck behind Bray for the first few laps. He took advantage of the New Zealand driver's retirement by gaining second position and began an incredible comeback with fast laps, which allowed him to close the gap with Forè by 2.1 seconds, to less than 2 tenths. The two begin a duel which also brings them into contact, but Manetti does not give up, closes the gap and narrowly finishes in second place.

  • Thomas Mich starts 8th and finishes 3rd ( Private Team - Birel Art -TM Kart). The Frenchman ends the weekend in Wackersdorf with an excellent comeback which gives him the bronze medal in this world event, albeit about 7" behind the first two.

  • Trio composed of all Italian drivers following: Riccardo Nalon (Erre Esse Karting Motorsport ASD -Parolin -TM Kart) is 4th, followed by Alessio La Martina ( Birel ART Racing Srl - Birel Art -TM Kart), 5th and Roberto Profico (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart -Vortex), 6th after starting from tenth position

  • Similar path for Rasmus Haugard (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart -Vortex), who started just outside the top 10 (11th), finished 7th, recovering four positions.

  • He finished 8th, recovering eight positions compared to the start, Jindrich Vacha ( Sumako IPK Racing - IPK -TM Kart), ahead of a Thierry Delré (Private Team - Mach 1 - Modena Engines ) in great form: starting 21st, he recovered 12 positions, finishing in 9th place. Sirio Costantini (Private Team - Birel Art -TM Kart) closes the top 10 , also at the end of a comeback of 13 positions compared to the start.

  • Despite finishing outside the top 10, a performance worth highlighting for Bruno Vanzan (Private Team - EKS -TM Kart). Having started 29th, he moved up the rankings to 12th place, achieving the "record" of overtakings carried out in this final.

  • Final to forget for Daniel Bray (Modena Kart ASD - Parolin -TM Kart). After taking pole at the end of the Heats and Super Heat , he was forced to retire after just three laps, while in 2nd place, due to a flat tire.
