  • If perfection were to have a name it would certainly be that of Thomas Strauven (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME). In pole position in qualifying, four victories in the qualifying heats, first in prefinal A on Sunday morning and absolute ruler of the final final of the weekend. The Belgian takes precious meters already in the first laps from his opponents and finishes with 3.585 seconds ahead of the second classified.

  • Consistency in terms of results rewards James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex). The American, given the great advantage in the standings, avoids any kind of useless tussle and, in the last laps, makes room for Luviwe Sambudla (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) and his teammate Sebastiano Pavan (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex). In the end, fourth place is enough to secure the WSK Super Master Series title.

  • Despite the fastest lap recorded in the last few laps, it is impossible for Samubdla to reach Strauven. However, the first podium in the OK category arrives for the South African, after a weekend always spent in the top tiers of the standings. First presence in the Top 3 also for Pavan, really fit here in Cremona and good at passing Egozi in the closing laps.

  • Fifth position Kirill Kutskov (DPK Racing – KR – IAME), while Louis Iglesias (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) occupies the second place in the first laps but, subsequently, slips back to the final sixth position. Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM) finished seventh, ahead of Xavier Avramides (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), eighth, Nathan Tye (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM), ninth, and Miguel Costa (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM ), tenth.

  • A comeback of 8 positions and the 11th place finish for René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM) is not enough to worry Egozi in the championship. The Dutchman, afflicted by engine problems in qualifying, still ranks second in the WSK Super Master Series. Behind we find Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Prema Racing – KR – IAME), 12th.

  • Bad luck blocks David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex) again in Sunday morning's pre-final with a retirement. The Dane recovered 13 positions in the final, but did not get the podium in the championship. Back also Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM), 14th and Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex), 17th.
