  • Even when he doesn't seem to have the speed to win, Arvid Lindblad (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) manages to come up with something special and put the piece into it. Starting fourth, the Red Bull Junior Team rider immediately took off third and it didn't take long to reach leader Nikola Tsolov (DPK Racing - KR - IAME) and launch the attack. The KR Motorsport driver is overtaken after his first attempt, but is aware that he cannot miss a very fast Tsolov and therefore during the fifth lap he regains the leadership with a breathtaking maneuver, characterized by that sporting aggression typical of great champions . Lindblad then flew to success, signing one fastest lap after another, and with three wins out of three races he won the championship with almost 200 points ahead of his closest rival.

  • After winning both heats and his pre-final, Nikola Tsolov has to settle for second position in the final, which also earned him his first podium of the season. The poleman on Friday is adept at not losing his temper when he slips into fifth and shows his growth.

  • Third at the finish is an amazing Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex). Starting ninth, the Tony Kart standard bearer is very incisive in the first phase of the race, so much so that he reaches second position in just six laps. The reigning world runner-up must then give in to Tsolov's attack, but he is simply flawless in defending himself from Andrea Kimi Antonelli (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) in the final part to win his first podium of the season.

  • Antonelli arrives just 67 thousandths from Turney at the end of a very close race. After winning his pre-final, the pupil Mercedes has a difficult start from second place and slips eighth, but comes back with an excellent pace and on lap 10 he moves to third position. The reigning European champion is then passed by Tsolov and closes in fourth place, with no championship ambitions considering that he skipped the first round and raced the second in KZ2.

  • After also leading the race for one lap, Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) has to settle for fifth place finish to end a weekend lived as an absolute protagonist.

  • Only 24th in qualifying, Ugo Ugochukwu (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) crosses the finish line of the final in sixth place. The driver in orbit McLaren thus wins the silver medal in the championship.

  • Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) and Luigi Coluccio (Kosmic Racing Department - Kosmic - Vortex) confirmed themselves at the top of the classification, respectively seventh and eighth.

  • The top ten is completed by the third classified of the first round of Lonato Brando Badoer (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), who recovers four positions from the start, and a constant Cristian Bertuca (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), who earn a. The Birel ART Racing standard bearer precedes an exceptional Giovanni Trentin (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), Alfio Spina (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) and the third classified of the second round of Adria Martinius Stenshorne (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing).

  • Starting from the seventh position on the grid, Tymoetusz Kucharczyk (Birel ART Racing - RK - TM Racing) is forced to retire, but after obtaining the second place in Adria he wins the bronze medal in the championship.
