  • A weekend worth remembering for Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart). The Italian, who took the lead in the standings at the end of the qualifying heats, won the pre-final on Sunday morning and secured pole position for the final. Then, in the afternoon race, he got off to a perfect start when the traffic lights went out and remained in the lead until the final checkered flag.
  • Starting eighth, Daniel Vasile (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart) quickly climbs the rankings and reaches second place, after which he begins to reduce his margin from Bertuca. However, the Romanian does not catch up with the Italian and is "satisfied" with second place.
  • Another podium – this time the lowest one – for Andrea Dalè (Andrea Dalè – CRG – TM Kart). Author of a solid run in the qualifying heats, the Italian shows his muscles in the first laps and successfully defends third position in the final stages of the race.
  • Maksim Orlov (Modena Kart – Parolin – TM Kart) tries in every way to steal the podium from Dalè, but the Italian champion finishes fourth after gaining 6 positions in total. Immediately behind we find Tom Leuillet (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), fifth, Pedro Hiltbrand (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), sixth after a good start in second position, and Markus Kajak (Maranello SRP Factory Team – Maranello – TM Kart), seventh after retiring in the morning pre-final.
  • The first outing with the official Tony Kart colors of Marijn Kremers (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) ends with 7 positions gained and the eighth final place, but then he receives a 5 second penalty for the front nose in the wrong position correct and slips 14th. Alex Maragliano (Renda Motorsport – Sodikart – TM Kart) is therefore eighth.
  • Nice comeback of 11 positions for Matteo Viganò (CL Racing Team – Birel Art – TM Kart), ninth. Followed by Daniel Stell (Dorr Motorsport – KR – IAME), 10th, Samuel Luyet (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), 11th, Jean Luyet (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), 12th, and Giuseppe Palomba (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM Kart), 13th. 15th Matheus Morgatto (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart).
  • Samuele Leopardi (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), Francesco Celenta (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Emilien Denner (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM Kart) withdrew.
