  • He starts the weekend with the 22nd time in qualifying, but then Vladimir Ivannikov (Drago Corse Racing Team - EKS - TM Racing) surprises everyone with his performance. The Russian driver dominates his pre-final, in a category known for its balance among the participants, and repeats himself in the final. After taking the podium in the second round of Adria, the standard bearer of the Drago Corse Racing Team thus won the silver medal in the championship, although he missed the first round in Lonato and only ran four races in Italy.

  • The only driver who seems to be able to attack Ivannikov is Christian Costoya (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing). Started from the third position on the grid, the Spanish driver parades second and remains stamped to the leader for the entire race, without attacking him. The Parolin Motorsport standard bearer does not want to risk it because, after having obtained second place also in Adria, this result is enough for him to win the WSK Euro Series.

  • After winning his pre-final, Iacopo Martinese (CMT - Parolin - TM Racing) slips sixth in the early stages of the race, but then performs very well in the brawl and crosses the finish line in third position. The Italian driver thus takes his first WSK podium.

  • Matias Orjuela (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) confirms himself at the top of the classification, fourth at the checkered flag after gaining four positions from the start and author of the fastest lap.

  • The poleman Dean Hoogendoorn (Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME) concludes a weekend of the highest level in fifth place and precedes three other protagonists: Davide Bottaro (AVracing - Parolin -TM Racing), sixth, Griffin Peebles (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), seventh, and Alfie Slater (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), eighth.

  • The top ten was closed by Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), on the podium at the first round in Lonato, and Matic Presa (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing), completing a very competitive weekend.

  • After the podium in the first round and the victory in the second, Emanuele Olivieri (Formula K Serafini - IPK - TM Racing) sees the possibility of fighting for the championship in the prefinal vanish, when he jumps on the curb during a duel and falls chain. The standard bearer of the Formula K Serafini team must be satisfied with the bronze medal, aware that he has proved his worth.

  • The winner of the first round of Lonato Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) is also slowed by a contact in the pre-final, but still manages to finish it and qualify for the final. In the final race the standard bearer of the Babyrace Driver Academy gains 16 positions from the start and crosses the finish line in 12th position, finishing fourth in the championship.ResultsChampionship standings
