  • Lucas Fluxa (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) had been in command of Prefinal A for several laps, only to finish in second place, but in the final the Spaniard remains ahead of everyone until the checkered flag. Parade fourth in the initial stages, the KR Motorsport team bishop skilfully juggles the brawl and overtakes Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - Kosmic - Vortex) on the seventh lap to take the lead, but the 2020 world champion responds. Fluxa is not discouraged and tries again successfully in the next round to fly towards the first triumph in WSK.

  • Second at the finish is an excellent Maksim Orlov (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), who exalts himself in the excited phases of the race and gains nine positions from the start to finish on the podium a weekend that began with 22nd place in qualifying.

  • Just behind Orlov is the other Parolin of Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing). After having also imposed himself in a very hard-fought Prefinal A, the Russian driver starts from pole position, but is overtaken by David Walther (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), winner of Prefinal B, on the second lap. From there, a series of thrilling duels take place, culminating in the contact between Khavalkin and Walther. The standard bearer of the Parolin Motorsport team finds himself sixth, but manages to recover up to third place, even if he remains with a bitter taste in his mouth after dominating the weekend.

  • Maksimilian Popov (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) confirms himself at the top of the standings with the final fourth place and precedes David Walther, who after having been in the lead for four laps and having found himself 15th following the contact with Khavalkin to the fifth square.

  • Sixth is Rashid Al Dhaheri (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), who loses second place just three laps from the end. The WSK Super Master Series champion closes just ahead of Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), who ends a weekend that started with the 27th position in qualifying in a positive way.

  • Rene Lammers (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), Enea Frey (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - Kosmic - Vortex) and Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) complete the top ten, all making a comeback.

  • Nathaniel Tye (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) even gains 13 positions compared to the start, 11th under the checkered flag ahead of a remarkable Stepan Antonov (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) and Kirill Dzitiev (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex ).

  • Friday's poleman is followed by Andres Cardenas (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), who gains 11 positions from the start, and Sebastiano Pavan (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), author of the fastest lap and seventh in the finish line, but penalized by five seconds due to the nose in the wrong position. He receives the same penalty, after fighting for the win and finishing in third place, Freddie Slater, to which another five seconds are added due to incorrect maneuvering. Team rider Ricky Flynn Motorsport thus concludes his last race in OKJ in 17th place.

  • It should be underlined that a twist a few meters from the Prefinal A route deprives the OKJ of two great protagonists. Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) part third, he touches with Enzo Deligny (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) when the traffic lights go out and hits the barriers. Fortunately, the Latvian driver is fine, but he is taken to hospital because he complains of pain in his foot. Deligny, on the other hand, was disqualified due to the maneuver that according to the match judges caused the accident and therefore did not even take part in the restart. From TKART best wishes for a speedy recovery to the young Tomass.
