  • An extraordinary Sunday for Iskender Zulfikari (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME). The Turkish driver, fourth in the intermediate classification on Saturday evening, opens the day today with a solid victory in pre-final B, after which he plays his best cards in the last laps of the final passing to the lead with three laps to go. The Babyrace Driver Academy rider wins the race and becomes champion.

  • Also author of the victory in pre-final A, Dean Hoogendoorn (Alonso Kart by Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME) fights for the victory up to the last meter and closes with just 40 thousandths of a second behind Zulfikari. Nevertheless, the second place gives him the second position in the championship.

  • In the end, Filippo Sala (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME) was one of the fastest drivers of the whole weekend and climbs back to the lowest step of the podium after a hard-fought final. However, the Italian rejoices in third position in the WSK Final Cup.

  • Remarkable comeback by Lorenzo D’Amico (IPK Official Racing Team - IPK - TM Racing) and Vladimir Ivannikov (Gamoto - EKS - TM Racing). The Italian recovers 10 positions and finishes fourth, while the Gamoto driver climbs 8 positions and finishes fifth. Behind them, in sixth position, we find Augustus Toniolo (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME).

  • Leader of the intermediate classification after the qualifying heats and in pole position for the final, Bogdan Cosma-Cristofor (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) remains involved in the numerous brawls and finishes seventh. The Top 10 is completed by Bosco Arias (Alonso Kart by Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME), eighth, William Calleja (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), ninth, and Filippo Pancotti (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME), tenth.

  • Nine positions gained by Melvin Kalousdian (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - TM Racing) and Shen Zeyu (AVRacing - Parolin - TM Racing), respectively 11th and 12th. +12 positions compared to the starting grid for Cristian Blandino (CRG Racing Team - CRG - IAME), 13th. Followed in the standings by Luka Malbasa (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), 14th, and Oliver Rasmussen (CRG Racing Team - CRG - IAME), 15th.
