The weather was still beautiful on Sunday in the late morning for the KF Prefinal. The start was a bit strange with an inner lane that was far ahead which determined the order on the first lap: Alexander Vartanyan (Tony Kart / Vortex) followed by Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart / Vortex) who had started 7th, Sasakorn Chaimongkol (Kosmic / Vortex ) 3rd, Richard Verschoor (Exprit / Vortex) 4th, Max Fewtrell (FA Kart / Vortex) 5th, Aatu Moilainen (Tony Kart / Vortex) 6th, Christian Sorensen (Kosmic / Vortex) 7th, Juan Correa (Energy / TM) 8th, Rokas Baciuska (Energy / TM) 9th and Benjamin Lessennes (Zanardi / Parilla) 10th.


Fewtrell then dropped down again before returning from 10th to 5th place in the end of the race, while Correa crashed with Marco Moretti (Tony Kart / TM) in mid race. Vartanyan controlled the race and lined up fastest laps until the finish. Lorandi encountered last lap problems and narrowly saved 2nd place against Verschoor. Moilainen finished 4th in front of Fewtrell, Lessennes returned to 6th and Sorensen 7th.

Verschoor, 3. Fewtrell; 4. Lessennes; 5. Chaimongkol.
