OK-N: Lamberto Ferrari wins in a tight finish

Tyres: Vega

  • A breathtaking finale was staged in Franciacorta in the OK-N category. Federico Rossi (PRK – Tony Kart – TM) immediately takes the reins of the race, but has to contend with rivals Robin Sarg (Novalux – Lenzokart – LKE), Lamberto Ferrari (Sumako IPK Racing – IPK – Modena Engines) and Andrea Volpato (M2 Racing – Gillard – TM).
  • Sarg takes the lead halfway through the race, but Rossi doesn't give up and gets back to the front on the penultimate lap. Then the two, together with Ferrari and Volpato, battle on the last lap. Ferrari, having taken the lead, manages to gain a good margin over its pursuers and crosses the finish line first.
  • Sarg is second, 1.173 seconds behind Ferrari, but ahead of Volpato by just 82 thousandths of a second. Rossi, however, misses out on the podium and finishes fourth, 72 thousandths of a second behind Volpato. Leon Hedfors (DR – DR – Modena Engines) reaches the top four, however finishes fifth.
  • Federico Bagioli (LGK Racing Kart – Birel Art – TM) is sixth, followed in the standings by Anja Levar (Mark Racing Team – Kosmic – TM), seventh, Francisco Paredes Altamirano (MLG Racing – Parolin – TM), eighth, Edoardo Mormorelli ( Maranello Kart – Maranello – TM), ninth, and Mattia Severino Marchiante (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME), tenth.


OKN-J: Dean Hoogendoorn wins but receives a penalty, Bogdan Cosma Cristofor is first

Tyres: Vega

  • A no-holds-barred battle for victory between multiple drivers in the OKN-J final. Starting second on the grid and leading the race from lap 10, Dean Hoogendoorn (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME) won the final, but after the podium he received a 5-second penalty for a collision with his opponent. The Dutchman appealed, thus leaving the ranking suspended.
  • Meanwhile, the victory is awarded to Bogdan Cosma Cristofor (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME). The Romanian thus obtained his second victory in the second race among the "Juniors", a week after the triumph in Lonato del Garda in the X30 Junior.
  • Less happy is Asher Ochstein (CRG Racing Team – CRG – TM), on the lowest step of the podium and then promoted to second. The American emerges in the final and fights for the lead in the first laps, but fails to finish in front of Hoogendoorn and Cosma Cristofor on the track.
  • Nice comebacks by Kais Aziza (Gamoto – Tony Kart – TM), classified third after gaining 8 positions. Positive fourth place for Valerio Viapiana (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME), ahead of polesitter Noah Baglin (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), fifth; the latter immediately took the lead of the race, but the subsequent brawls penalized him considerably, so much so that he actually slipped to tenth.
  • Hoogendoorn, for the moment, is sixth. Followed in the standings are Luigi Antonio Cocchianella (Stefano Cocchianella – KR – TM), seventh, Lorenzo D'Amico (Emme Racing – EKS – Modena Engines), eighth, and Bruno Gryc (MLG Racing – Parolin – TM), ninth after being the fastest of everyone in qualifying on Friday.
