  • David Cosma Cristofor (Gulstar Racing - KR - IAME) won his first success in the MINI category. The Romanian driver, who dominated the qualifying heats with five wins out of five races, is also perfect in the pre-final and final. Second on the starting grid, Cosma Cristofor sprints strongly and, at the end of lap 1, is already in command and flies straight to victory.

  • With an extraordinary second position, Niklas Schaufler (Emme Racing - EKS - TM Racing) is the new champion of the WSK Open Cup. After the good comeback between qualifying and qualifying heats, the Austrian gains another six positions in the final and, with the third position of Lonato, he is definitely first in the championship.

  • Still on the podium Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME), third but with a few seconds behind Cosma Cristofor and Schaufler. The driver from the Czech Republic battles with Dean Hoogendoorn (Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME), Dries Van Langendonck (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) and Christian Costya (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) and, on the last lap, succeeds to impose itself on rivals. Pesl did not win the title and finished second in the championship, behind Schaufler but ahead of Cosma Cristofor.

  • Too bad, however, for costoya, long third but "only" sixth on the finish line. Some regrets for Hoogendoorn, in pole position thanks to the victory in the pre-final, and fourth under the checkered flag. Dries Van Langendonck does not gain positions with respect to the start and ends fifth.

  • Incredible recovery for Emanuele Olivieri (Formula K Serafini - IPK - TM Racing) in the final. The winner in round 1 of Lonato recovered 13 positions and finished seventh. Too bad because, if all went well in qualifying, the Italian could have been one of the protagonists for the title.

  • Filippo Pancotti (AVracing - Parolin -TM Racing) hits the Top 10 and is eighth, ahead of Elliot Kaczynski (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - TM Racing), ninth, and Kilian Josseron (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), tenth . Iacopo Martinese (CMT - Parolin - TM Racing) loses 8 positions and drops to 11th position. Behind Sala Filippo Josseron (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), 12th, is a good Alfie Slater (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), 13th with 16 positions gained.

  • Cristian Tonalini's weekend (MLG Racing - Parolin - TM Racing) does not end well: the author of the pole position in qualifying retires when there are 4 laps left.
