Tyres: Vega

  • Francesco Celenta (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) had decided not to leave anything to his opponents and so he did, completing his en plein with the victory in Prefinal A and the success in the final. The Italian driver remains at the head of the race from the stop lights to the checkered flag, resisting in an exemplary way the attacks of Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) during the first laps. After having done a great job with the Parolin Motorsport team, Celenta takes home the first victory of the season, absolutely deserved.

  • Second at the finish is Stan Pex (SP Motorsport - KR - TM Racing), who is confirmed as the most incisive after the weekend star. The standard bearer of the SP Motorsport team loses the leadership of Prefinal B on the last lap following an aggressive overtaking by Albanese and in the final he is forced to recover from sixth position on the grid. Mission accomplished, but the possibility of having a close confrontation with Celenta escapes.

  • Danilo Albanese climbs on the third step of the podium. The rider of the KR Motorsport team sprints strongly from the fourth starting square, immediately moves to second place and puts pressure on Celenta. Albanese launches the attack just before halfway through the race, but Celenta is good at resisting and the driver aboard the KR misses out on the corner, also inserting neutral. Albanese is thus sucked into the group composed of Pex, Kris Haanen (SP Motorsport - KR - TM Racing) and Lorenzo Travisanutto (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), with whom he begins to battle with overtaking and counter-overtaking, to then obtain the bronze medal.

  • After surprisingly winning Prefinal B, taking advantage of the contact between Albanese and Pex, Kris Haanen passes fourth under the checkered flag complete with a fast lap, but is relegated to eighth place by a five-second penalty due to the nose being in position not correct. The fresh FIA Karting International Super Cup champion Lorenzo Travisanutto then inherits fourth place at the end of a breathtaking challenge, thus concluding a weekend lived as an absolute protagonist.

  • A surprising Simon Connor Primm (NB Motorsport - Lenzo Kart - TM Racing) closes in fifth place a weekend that began with 14th place in qualifying and gains three positions from the start. In comeback thanks to good performances also Markus Kajak (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), sixth, and Paul Rieberer (Birel ART Racing KSW - Birel ART - TM Racing), seventh.

  • Thomas Imbourg (CPB Sport - Sodikart - TM Racing) and Nikita Artamonov (SRP Racing Team - Maranello - TM Racing) complete the top ten, just ahead of Iaroslav Shevyrtalov (Team Komarov - Tony Kart - TM Racing) and Giorgio Emiliano Carrara (Novalux - Lenzo Kart - LKE), who recovers 11 positions from the start.

  • After having been permanently in the top ten during the weekend, Genis Civico (DPK Racing - KR - IAME) is involved in a contact on the first lap and starts again detached from the group, to then finish 20th. Unlucky final also for two other protagonists of the weekend: Norton Andreasson (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), retired due to a contact while he is in the comeback phase, and Daniel Stell (NB Motorsport - Luxor - TM Racing), who closes 24th after battling in the top ten in the first few laps and slipping among the last ones during the eighth lap.
