  • In the first laps it seemed destined to take a second place, instead James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) surprises everyone with a disarming coldness and, where many make mistakes, he puts in the winning overtakes at the right moment of the race. The American thus grants himself the first success of his career in the Senior category.

  • Long leading the final, Gustav Wisnieswki (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing), was unable to contain Egozi in the closing laps and finished second, 0.540 seconds behind the winner. The Pole, exactly here one year ago, finished on the podium in the first round of the WSK Super Master Series.

  • The performance of Simone Bianco (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) should be underlined. The Italian driver goes wild in the central phase of the race and, after one overtaking after another, he gets to worry Wisnieswki. Unfortunately, passing over a curb, the chain breaks and thus ends the final prematurely.

  • Quietly, Jimmy Helias (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex) mocks his rivals and takes the lowest step of the podium. The Frenchman, who started ninth, remained to observe his rivals for a good part of the race, until he made his way in the closing laps.

  • He seemed to be aiming for victory, but in the end Gabriel Gomez (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) finished the race in fourth position. In any case, a positive result for the Brazilian, as well as the fifth position of Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Racing).

  • Fabulous comebacks for Sebastiano Pavan (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Maksimilian Popov (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex), able to recover respectively by 13 and 11 positions. The Italian finished sixth, while the Koski Motorsport driver was seventh.

  • A contact at the start in the prefinal precludes Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) from any chance of victory in the final. However, the Italian does not let go and, with an extraordinary climb, grabs the fifth position; unfortunately this turns into a tenth position due to a 5 second penalty for the nose in the incorrect position. Ahead of Coluccio, in eighth and ninth position, are respectively Enea Frey (Beyond Racing Team – KR – TM Racing) and Martin Molnar (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Racing).

  • The classification continues with Thomas Strauven (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – Vortex), 11th, Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex), 12th, Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing), 13th, Maxim Rehm (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – Vortex), 14th, and René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Racing), 15th.

  • Sunday to forget for David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex). The Dane, first yesterday after the qualifying heats, retires in the prefinal – while he was first – due to a technical problem, while in the final he parks his kart in the formation lap. Emanuele Olivieri (IPK Official Racing Team – IPK – TM Racing) also does not take part in the final.
