There was a perfect score for the British driver Ricky Collard (ART GP) in the heats with 4 wins out of 4 races, so he will start from pole position for the first prefinal, but also the bonus of 25 championship points. Charles Leclerc, with his usual brilliance, produced a double for ART GP in second position. Anthoine Hubert (Formula K) is probably the fastest driver this weekend at Angerville. With 3 wins, trouble from the starter forced him down to last in his fourth and final heat. He made a special recovery up to sixth position.

Martin Mortensen (Formula K) was very impressive in terms of speed, ranked fourth, while Henry Easthope (Sodi) remains on the list of favorites. There was a good performance from the Australian Joseph Mawson (Top Kart) ahead of the Spanish driver German Villanueva (Formula K) 6th, the Dutchman Dave Blom (Formula K) eighth, Matthew Graham (Zanardi) ninth and the Russian Seva (Vsevolod) Gagen (Parolin ) 10th. Surprisingly, Marco Maestranzi (PCR) is 28th, Ben Barnicoat (ART GP) 29th and Thiago Vivacqua (Zanardi) 33rd, while Federico Savona (Top Kart) and Sam Webster (ART GP) did not qualify.

In the French clan, things are pretty good: Enzo Marchetti (PCR) and Jules Gounon (Sodi) qualified honorably in 14th and 15th, Luca Midali (Zanardi), Hubert Petit (Sodi), who was fast but unlucky and Antoine Rocard (Sodi), usually a Rotax driver, are together in 22nd, 23rd and 24th places.

The 44 drivers in the Academy Trophy have come to end of their qualifying races at Angerville. This phase was hotly contested, and no competitor has dominated outrageously. The Briton Alex Gill is in first position with a good mix of performance and consistency. He is closely followed by his compatriot George Russell, delayed during a collision at the start of the second race. Alec Weckström (Finland) has been rapid since his pole in the morning. He is the only one to have taken two victories, but fell to ninth position in the 2nd heat, so isn't at the top of the favorites list. Tied with him is the French driver Paolo Besancenez who had a very good run with two second places, but regrettably experienced engine problems at the end of the day.

Also credited with good potential for the finals, the Finn Joonas Lappalainen is fifth due to a harder final race. He was followed in sixth position by another great French driver Erwan Julé who showed great intelligence in his race management. In seventh is the Swede Otto Tjader, Spaniard Javier Cobian in 8th, the Belgian Amaury Bonduel in 9th and the Italian Mattia Drudi in 10th.

Slightly slower than in Portugal, Adeline Prudent is still in the game and in 14th position. There was a big disappointment for the Polish driver Adrian Rozycki, who had been prominent at Braga, who didn't qualify in 32nd position.
