  • Always extremely fast throughout the weekend, in the end Matteo Viganò (Leclerc by Lennox Racing – Birel Art – TM) overthrew everyone in the decisive final on Sunday afternoon and thus conquered the victory that had been missing since the last round of the 2022 WSK Super Master Series in Sarno. In the first phase of the race, the Italian remained in Emilien Denner's slipstream (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM), after which he skilfully overtook him and never let go of the lead until the checkered flag.

  • Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing Team Birel Art – TM) was also extraordinary, third on the finish line and crowned new champion in his first year in the KZ2 category. Thanks to his consistency in terms of results and the very few mistakes he made, which allowed him to add another trophy to his showcase after the WSK Champions Cup at the beginning of the year.

  • Second place in the final and in the championship for Denner, happy with the result obtained although with the regret of the two withdrawals collected in Franciacorta and Sarno, both due to contacts with other opponents.

  • Despite a subdued prefinal, Tom Leuillet (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) grabs the fourth position. The reigning KZ2 European champion arrives in the wake of the top three, but does not find the necessary gap to overtake Bertuca and thus obtain the podium.

  • Starting from the front row, Senna Van Walstijn (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM) can't find the rhythm to fight with the leaders. In the end, the former WSK Super Master Series champion finished fifth. A good sixth position for the young Maxim Rehm (Leclerc by Lennox Racing – Birel Art – TM), as well as the 12-position comeback by Alex Maragliano (Maranello SRP Factory Team – Maranello -TM), seventh.

  • Positive eighth place for Michele Fontana (Kartxxl Racing Team – Birel Art – TM), ahead of Freddie Slater (Birel Art Racing Team Birel Art – TM), ninth in the race and sixth in the championship, and Norton Andreasson (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), tenth.

  • An accident between Daniel Vasile (Birel Art Racing Team Birel Art – TM) and Yevan David (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM) at the first corner, while they were in the top positions, puts both offsides from the final. Giuseppe Palomba (Birel Art Racing Team Birel Art – TM) also retired after a contact with Jean Luyet (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex).
