Another favorite, Max Verstappen (CRG / Parilla) was unable to participate in the qualifying heats due to severe pain in his back.

Jérémy Iglesias (Intrepid / TM) flew, Beitske Visser (Intrepid / TM) sneaked in front of Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex), followed by Bas Lammers (Intrepid / TM), but in sixth Ardigo fell back before the end of the 1st lap while Lammers was now on Iglesias' heels and Visser didn't let up on her two teammates, beating Roberto Toninelli (Lenzo / TM) and Antonio Piccioni (Parolin / TM).

Lammers took second on the 4th lap, while Ardigo was overwhelmed by his team-mate Gary Catt who set the fastest time! Rick Dreezen (Tony Kart / Vortex) in turn began a recovery from 15th place. He was in the top 10 after the halfway point. Jonathan Thonon was no longer in the race, he stopped in the middle of the track.

Ardigo was back on the pace with the fastest lap, Lammers took 2nd place from Visser who now had to look out for the return of Piccioni and Catt. 9th on the track, Davide Fore was penalized and dropped to 26th in the standings.

On lap 13, Lammers successfully attacked his team mate Iglesias and took the lead, but the French driver had not said the last word. Lammers and Iglesias were close, with more of a gap between Visser and Ardigo after taking Catt, now fourth. But Piccioni mixed in the fight for victory and took Iglesias on the last lap to take second place in an exciting race. Visser resisted the world champion for a fifth place finish narrowly on the finish line. Toninelli finished seventh from Convers, Dreezen and Hajek.

In the first KF1 final, the audience was in suspense at the WSK Euro Series at La Conca. Nyck De Vries (Zanardi / Parilla) started impeccably at the lights, but Alexander Albon (Intrepid / TM) led the first of 16 laps ahead of Ignazio D'Agosto (Tony Kart / Vortex ). Even worse on the following lap, De Vries was fifth after having to give in to an attack from Jordan Chamberlain (Intrepid / TM) and Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart / TM). The young Dutchman made up a place on lap 3. Zdenek Groman (Kosmic / Vortex) was in sixth ahead of Chris Lock (Tony Kart / Vortex), Karol Basz (RK / BMB) and Mark Litchfield (FA Kart / BMB).

De Vries's equipment came on gradually, as it often does, and he set the fastest lap on lap 5. Chamberlain was passed next. In the lead, Albon pushed to get a sufficient lead, but the race was not won yet, although he was more than 3 seconds ahead of the threat from De Vries. Sébastien Bailly (Kosmic / Vortex) was within the top 10 with convincing times. For now, it was D'Agosto is in the crosshairs of Nyck. 1.3'', 0.9'' and 0.6'' - the Zanardi was closing on the Tony Kart by 3 or 4 / 10 on every lap. Albon kept a large gap and now had a good chance of winning, especially as he remained the fastest in the race.

With two laps to go, De Vries was on the bumper of D'Agosto. But the Italian held off the Dutch driver, who did not take unnecessary risks.



Albon's victory rewarded the excellent performance of Intrepid from the beginning of the competition. D'Agosto was second, third was De Vries. Lock grabbed fourth in front of Chamberlain, Groman, Pakari, Basz, Toman and Bailly.

The starting grid for the second heat in KZ is virtually identical to heat 1. The lights did not change much as Rick Dreezen (Tony Kart / Vortex) took the lead with Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Jérémy Iglesias (Intrepid / TM) in his wake. Antonio Piccioni quickly took Beitske Visser and Bas Lammers to take fourth position. Roberto Toninelli (Lenzo / TM) was inserted into the sixth position ahead soon ahead of Visser.

Dreezen controlled his teammate Ardigo, closely followed by Iglesias. Fastest lap for Dreezen in mid-race. There was fighting on all levels, even at the end of the pack where there were top drivers like Thonon, Kozlinski, Cesetti and Hanley.

There was a twist on the eighth lap with the retirement of Dreezen on the last right leaving the win to Ardigo from Iglesias, Piccioni and Visser, who retook to Toninelli and Lammers. Dreezen watched, annoyed and helpless, the victory of his teammate.
