The KR Motorsport driver is impeccable and precedes Akshay Bohra and Matheus Ferreira on the finish line.

Tyres: Vega

  • Starting from pole, Alex Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) wins the final, taking a lights-to-flag victory. The Mercedes junior driver crosses the finish line with almost nine tenths of advantage over his direct rival and with this success he also takes the leadership of the championship. In fact, the winner of the first round of Adria Rashid Al Dhaheri (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) does not take part in the race due to the retirement in the pre-final and therefore finds himself second in the general classification.

  • Akshay Bohra (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) and Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) complete a podium entirely made by KR Motorsport . After dominating his four heats and his pre-final, Friday's pole-man has a difficult shot from the outer row of the grid and finds himself eighth at the end of the first lap. The Singapore driver then recovers up to second position, which he grabs during the last lap and which allows him to climb to third place in the championship. Ferreira, on the other hand, starts very well from the fifth box and immediately moves to second place. The Brazilian bishop keeps it throughout the race, only to lose it a few corners from the finish in favour of his teammate.

  • Tigran Bunatyan (Team Komarov - Tony Kart - TM Racing) gains two positions from the start and finishes fourth, while Miguel Costa (Sauber Orlen Karting Team - KR - IAME), after achieving an excellent second place in the pre-final, loses two and ends fifth.

  • Sixth position for Douwe Dedecker (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), who climbs three places and thus completes a positive weekend. Immediately behind him comes Alexander Gubenko (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), who after a difficult pre-final recovers six positions from the start and confirms himself as one of the protagonists of the weekend, in his first race with the Tony Kart Racing Team.

  • Ean Eyckmans (Kosmic Racing Department - Kosmic - Vortex) crosses the finish line eighth and thus concludes his best weekend of the season.

  • Exceptional comeback by Maksimilian Popov (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), who finishes in ninth place with 14 positions gained from the start and even with the fastest lap of the race. The Russian driver precedes the reigning world champion Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - Kosmic - Vortex), who loses two positions from the start and closes the top ten.

  • Harley Keeble (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) is the author of the best comeback of the final, recovering 19 positions to take the checkered flag in 14th place.

  • On the other hand, Maxim Rehm (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - Kosmic - Vortex), who started fourth, Antonio Apicella (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), Manuel Scognamiglio (Gamoto - Tony Kart - Vortex) and Oscar Wurz (Exprit Racing Team - Exprit - Vortex) retire.

  • Also worth noting is the great disappointment for David Walther (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), who was forced to retire in the pre-final while he was calmly in second position.
