  • He has been racing in OK for three years, but victory was still missing: in Cremona, Ean Eyckmans (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart) broke through and achieved his first success, thanks to a perfect drive in the final on a track with halfway between dry and wet. The Belgian, even in the previous days and in precarious conditions, was one of the best performers in the category.
  • In truth, in the early stages it is Gabriel Gomez (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) who directs the operations, but on the 5th lap he goes wide in a corner and loses two positions, to the advantage of Eyckmans and Oleksandr Bondarev (Prema Racing – KR – IAME). The Brazilian recovers and overtakes the Ukrainian, however he does not close the gap to the Belgian.
  • Author of the pole position in qualifying and a victory in the pre-finals, Fionn McLaughlin (VDK Racing – KR – IAME) took the lowest step of the podium, getting the better of Bondarev in the final stages of the final. For his part, the Prema Racing driver finished fourth.
  • Freddie Lloyd (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – TM Kart) closed an ever-growing weekend with the fifth final position. With 6 positions gained, David Walther (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) closes behind the Briton, 6th.
  • +14 positions in the standings compared to the start for Roland Kuklane (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – TM Kart), seventh at the finish line. Jimmy Helias (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) is eighth, followed by Louis Iglesias (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME), ninth, and Mees Houben (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), tenth.
  • Markas Silkunas (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) recovered 18 positions and finished 11th. After a good run in the qualifying heats, Gerasim Skulanov (DPK Racing – KR – IAME) finished 12th, ahead of Salim Hanna (Prema Racing – KR – IAME), 13th.
  • Further back we find Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Kart), 20th. Zac Drummond (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Kart) and Kai Rillaerts (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) retired. A technical problem prevents Noah Wolfe (VAR by Birel – Birel Art – TM Kart) from taking part in the race.
