  • After Friday's pole position, Arvid Lindblad (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) wins for the first time in OK in his third appearance in the premier category of single-speed karting. Starting fourth, the KR Motorsport standard bearer parades sixth on the first lap, and then behaves very well in the brawl and recovers up to the first position fast lap after fast lap. The English driver takes the lead on lap 13 and flies towards success, arriving at the finish line one point seven seconds clear of his direct rival and thus taking second place in the championship.

  • After the victory in the first round in Adria, Rafael Camara (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) looks ready to score two in a row and takes the lead on lap 11, but then has to give in to the fury of his teammate. The Brazilian driver still maintains the leadership of the championship.

  • Tymoetusz Kucharczyk (Birel ART Racing - RK - TM Racing) achieves his first podium in OK in his rookie season. Starting from fifth place, the Polish driver parades third at the start and fights the whole race to keep it up, responding coldly to all the attacks suffered. Kucharczyk thus obtains the first podium of the season for the Birel ART Racing team and moves to third position in the championship.

  • Good comeback for Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), who gains seven positions from the start and finishes fourth, while Andrea Kimi Antonelli (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) loses four and finishes fifth. After taking the victory of his pre-final by force, the Mercedes driver starts well from pole and keeps the lead for half the race, but then starts to struggle and slips back. The KR Motorsport standard bearer is still fourth in the championship, although he was forced to leave the first round in Adria prematurely due to physical problems.

  • Alfio Spina (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) closes an always-improving weekend in sixth place and precedes Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) on the finish line. After winning his pre-final, the Finnish driver has a difficult start from the outside row of the grid and slips 11th on the first lap.

  • After setting the 29th time in qualifying, Lukas Malek (DPK Racing - KR - IAME) finishes the final in eighth place and precedes Andrey Zhivnov (Team Komarov - Tony Kart - TM Racing), who recovers six positions from the start.

  • Cristian Bertuca (Birel ART Racing - Birel ART - TM Racing) closes the top ten, as he climbs seven positions from the start and ends like this a weekend that began with the 34th time in qualifying.

  • Ivan Domingues (Leclerc by Lennox Racing) is the author of the best comeback of the final, gaining ten positions from the start and crossing the finish line in 19th place. On the other hand, Edoardo Ludovico Villa (TBKart - TBKart - TM Racing) closes in 29th place, thus finding himself sixth in the championship after the podium obtained in the first round of Adria.

  • Reigning world champion Callum Bradshaw (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), the protagonist of the weekend Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) and Ferrari Driver Academy driver James Wharton (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) retire.

  • Huge disappointment also for Brando Badoer (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), who makes a mistake in the pre-final while he is in second position and is forced to retire. The Italian driver spins after a contact with the barrier inside the chicane and Ugo Ugochukwu (Sauber Orlen Karting Team - KR - IAME), who arrives shortly after, is forced to go off the track to avoid him, thus ending his weekend ahead of time. After taking his first podium in OK two weeks ago in Adria, the Sauber Orlen Karting Team bishop is now seventh in the championship.

  • Unfortunately Igor Cepil (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) does not participate on Sunday due to an injury.
