  • There are no stories in the final of the World Cup reserved for the KZ2 category. Arthur Carbonnel (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) is elusive from the turning off of the traffic lights to the checkered flag. The French driver, first at the end of the qualifying heats and also after the super heats on Sunday morning, starts the breakaway from the first meters of the race and, to the sound of fast laps, creates a void behind him. Not surprisingly, there are four seconds between him and the runner-up.

  • Exciting final, however, precisely for the second position. Cristian Bertuca (Birel ART Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), slightly in crisis, finds himself having to defend himself from Arvid Lindblad (SP Motorsport - KR - TM Racing). However, David Trefilov (Maranello SRP Racing Team - Maranello - TM Racing) also enters the scene, trying to overtake Lindblad on the last lap: the British does not see him and closes it, with the German climbing him. above and ends off the track.

  • Bertuca thus flies towards the second position, while Lindblad keeps the third position. Despite everything, a great satisfaction for both young drivers, constantly in the very first positions of the standings during the weekend and - we remember - in their first year with shifter karts.

  • Valentino Fritsch (Birel ART Racing KSW - Birel Art - TM Racing) inherits the fourth position of Trefilov, after a careful and constantly growing race. Felix Arnold (Maranello SRP Racing Team - Maranello - TM Racing) is the best Maranello chassis in the standings, fifth. Even the young Norton Andreasson (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), in his first full season in the category, brings home an excellent result: sixth.

  • Tom Leuillet (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) finished seventh, two tenths of a second behind Andreasson. Unfortunately, the European champion is relegated 10th for a 5 second penalty due to the front nose being in the wrong position.

  • Matteo Spirgel (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing) enters the Top 10 with the seventh position, after finishing in the sprint behind Leuillet. 5 second penalty - again for the nose - also to Daniel Vasile (DR - DR - Modena Engines), who dropped from eighth to 12th position.

  • Pure Robert Kindervater (Birel ART Racing KSW - Birel Art - TM Racing) finished in the top ten, eighth. Jean Luyet (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) recovers 11 positions in the standings and grabs the ninth position. Markus Kajak (AIX Racing Team) is close to the Top 10, eleventh.

  • Second at the start, Samuel Luyet (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) does not find the necessary pace to stay in front and falls 13th. Technical problems put an end to the tests of Jorge Pescador (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) and Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), eagerly awaited for the fight for a place on the podium.

  • Two notable comebacks for Jean Nomblot (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing) and Thomas Imbourg (CPB Sport - Sodi - TM Racing): the former gains 21 positions and finishes 14th, while his teammate climbs from 25th to 15th.
