  • Always protagonist during the weekend, but never extremely incisive, Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) expresses all his determination in the final. Started from the fifth spot on the grid, the 2021 vice world champion makes his way through the leading group and, thanks to a series of surgical maneuvers, gains the leadership of the race on lap ten. The Tony Kart Racing Team driver proves to be astute in waiting a few laps before attacking David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex) to make sure that the opponents behind him approach and then they can engage in a challenge with the young Dane . Exactly the desired scenario occurs and this is how Coluccio flies away towards a resounding success

  • An excellent René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM) crossed the finish line in second place, gaining his first podium in the premier class of single-speed karting and topping it off with a fastest lap. The rookie suffers a complicated start from the second external row and slips up to sixth place, but then recovers thanks to a remarkable pace, which leaves a bitter taste in his mouth because he probably could have fought for the win. The standard-bearer of the Parolin Motorsport team nonetheless climbs to third position in the provisional standings of the championship.

  • The winner of the first round James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) is satisfied with the bronze medal. Friday's poleman displays his stubbornness in dueling with his direct rivals in the championship and admits that he was more focused on staying ahead of them than on winning the race. This is how the winner of Prefinal A extends his leadership in the championship, showing noteworthy lucidity.

  • Fourth under the checkered flag after having fought for the podium is Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM), but the reigning WSK Open Cup champion is relegated to eighth place by a five-second penalty due to an incorrect position.

  • Thomas Strauven (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – Vortex) inherited the fourth place, thus concluding a weekend lived as an absolute protagonist. The Ricky Flynn Motorsport team driver precedes another main actor such as Jimmy Helias (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex), fifth and still competitive.

  • The weekend ends on a more bitter note, instead, David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex), sixth. The ruler of Prefinal B started from pole position and defended himself very well in the first half of the race, keeping the reins. It is Coluccio's overtaking that upsets the young Dane's race, who is also attacked by the rest of the leading group and finds himself seventh. The winner of the second round still maintains second place in the provisional standings of the championship.

  • The top ten is completed thanks to convincing performances by Gustaw Wisniewski (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM) and Martin Molnar (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM). The performances of Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – Vortex), 11th, Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex), 12th, Joel Bergstrom (Birel ART Racing – Birel ART – TM), 13th, are equally convincing ° at his first appearance with Birel ART colors, Maxens Verbrugge (Birel ART Racing – Birel ART – TM), 14th, and Antonio Apicella (Team Driver Racing Kart – Kosmic – IAME), 15th.

  • On the other hand, a placement in the top 15 is lost following a five-second penalty due to the nose being in an incorrect position by Sebastiano Pavan (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), Emanuele Olivieri (IPK Official Racing Team – IPK – TM) and Arthur Poulain (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex).

  • The final of the reigning world champion Matheus Morgatto (Birel ART Racing – Birel ART – TM) was even more bitter, as he was forced to retire.
