  • He had already amply demonstrated that he was fast, but sometimes he was unable to materialize. In Sarno, however, Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is impeccable and achieves the much desired success. Starting from pole after winning the pre-final, the KR Motorsport standard bearer does not make any mistakes and resists the pressure of his direct rivals very well. The Italian driver triumphs in style and takes place of honor in the championship.

  • Paavo Tonteri (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) concludes a weekend in continuous growth, second at the finish line and third in the championship. Having slipped fourth at the start, the CRG Racing Team standard bearer is shrewd in overtaking first Adrien Renaudin (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) and then Giuseppe Palomba (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), thus taking second place position. The Finnish driver remains stamped in Albanese throughout the race, but fails to launch the attack and complains of a loss of grip in the final phase of the race. Tonteri, however, puts the patch on a weekend that began with 16th place in qualifying due to an inexplicable loss of performance and embellishes everything with a fast lap.

  • Giuseppe Palomba is satisfied with the third step of the podium, thus becoming champion of the WSK Euro Series. After being beaten, for the first time during the weekend, in the pre-final, the Friday poleman tries to put Albanese in the first laps, but he doesn't want to take excessive risks and then drops slightly. Although sorry for missing the appointment with the victory on the home circuit, Palomba celebrates the success in the championship and reaffirms his role as absolute protagonist.

  • Noah Milell (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) also gives further proof of his abilities, passing fourth under the checkered flag thanks to a comeback of three positions. After losing ground in the pre-final following a contact with Arthur Carbonnel (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing), who was attempting the attack, the reigning world champion shows great potential. The Tony Kart Racing Team standard bearer precedes his teammate Adrien Renaudin (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), fifth after competing for the podium in the first laps.

  • The authors of convincing performances are David Liwinski (CPB Sport - Sodikart - TM Racing), sixth, Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), seventh, Daniel Vasile (DR - DR - Modena Engines), eighth, Ivan Ekelchik (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), ninth, Morgan Porter (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), tenth, and the reigning world champion Lorenzo Camplese (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), 11th.

  • Genis Civico (Modena Kart - Birel ART - TM Engines), who finds himself in front of Michael Paparo (IPK Official Racing Team - IPK - TM Racing) ), 13th, Tom Leuillet (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), 14th after being hit by Civico, Alex Maragliano (Fina Mangione - Drago Corse - TM Racing), 15th, and Oscar Targett ( Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), 16th.

  • Two protagonists of the weekend are forced to retire: Robin Glerum (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing) and Arthur Carbonnel (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing), stopped by engine failure while occupying fourth place.
