OKJ: Christian Costoya returns to savor the taste of victory

Tires: Vega

  • Since his debut in OKJ at the end of 2022, Christian Costoya (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Kart) had not yet scored a victory; indeed, he and he had finished first under the checkered flag, only to be penalized post-race. This time the Spaniard's moment has finally arrived, author of a perfect performance and good at responding to the attacks of Niklas Schaufler (DPK Racing – KR – IAME) and Dean Hoogendoorn (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME).
  • Schaufler, among the fastest of the weekend, was unfortunately involved in an accident caused by a huge fight for the podium. Instead, Hoogendoorn remains in Costoya's wake, however he is unable to worry the Spaniard: it is still an excellent result for him, his first podium in OKJ.
  • Jack Iliffe (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) duels in the final laps with Rocco Coronel (VictoryLane Karting – KR – IAME) and snatches the lowest step of the podium from the Dutchman, who receives a 5-second penalty in the post-race for the front nose in an incorrect position. Returning to the American, it is also his first podium in OKJ.
  • Dries Van Langendonck (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) suffers a rear-end collision at the start of the morning's pre-final B and loses several positions in the standings. The world champion goes wild in the final and, with a comeback of 12 positions, takes fourth place.
  • Bosco Arias Chavarri (DPK Racing – KR – IAME) obtained a positive fifth position, ahead of Henry Domain (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Kart), sixth, and Filippo Sala (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – TM Kart), seventh. Friday's polesitter Lev Krutogolov (Borsch Racing – Tony Kart – IAME) is eighth, after retiring in prefinal B due to a braking error.
  • Nice comeback of 16 positions for Qarrar Firhand (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Kart), ninth. Oliver Kinnmark (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – TM Kart) also did well, from 23rd to tenth. Iacopo Martinese (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) did not go beyond 12th place. Scott Kin Lindblom (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), involved in Van Langendonck's accident in the prefinal, classified 24th.


OKN-J: second championship victory for Bogdan Cosma Cristofor

Tires: Vega

  • In the decisive moment of the weekend, Bogdan Cosma Cristofor (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) shows his claws: first he wins the morning pre-final B, after which he beats Valerio Viapiana (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME) in the afternoon final. The Italian, always at the top of the standings over the weekend, is unable to excel over the Romanian, who is increasingly leading the championship.
  • Ludovico Mazzola (Stefano Mazzola – Exprit – Vortex) shows an excellent pace in the final and wins his first podium in the category, with 5 positions gained compared to the start. Pietro Bagutti (Gamoto – Tony Kart – TM Kart) closed in fourth position, ahead of Gioele Carrer (Scarpi Racing – Parolin – IAME), fifth, and Alex Molota (Firefly Racing Team – Gillard – TM Kart), sixth.
  • After the victory in Cremona, Archie Lovatt (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) finished seventh here in Franciacorta, followed by teammate Andrea Manni (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart), eighth. Among the top ten we also find Cristian Tonalini (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), ninth, and Kacper Rajpold (MG Racing Team – Tony Kart – TM Kart), tenth.
