The weather was cloudy on Sunday morning at Ostricourt for the start of qualifying in KZ2, but all hope was not lost, as some rays of sun light reach the track. As always, the drivers took time to warm up their engines before attacking. Nolan Mantione (Sodi / TM) and Nicky Moris (Tony Kart / Vortex) topped the table before Thomas Mich (Birel / TM) dropped below 53'', soon joined by Anthony Abbasse (Sodi / Maxter) and Morgan Weber (Merlin / TM). With Clement Da Silva (Birel / TM) 4th and Mathieu Gaillard (Energy / TM) 5th, we now have the hierarchy of the day. Mantione held a good 6th place ahead of Moris, then Charles Fiault (Sodi / Maxter) back in 8th position.

Guillaume De Ridder (Tony Kart / Vortex) starts again from pole for the KF2 final, followed closely by Leo Roussel (Sodi / Parilla) and Enzo Guibbert (FA Kart / Vortex). Roussel was in first place on the first lap, but Victor Sendin (Tony Kart / Vortex) tried and succeeded in braking unusually in to the first hairpin and jumped in to the lead authoritatively. De Ridder was forced to give ground, and went back behind Guibbert and Sendin on the 4th lap.
Sendin was ultimately not much better off than in the pre-final because he could not defend from Roussel. Then there was the fight between Deguffroy and De Ridder for 4th. In 10th place, Pascal Belmaaziz (DR / Parilla) set the fastest time. Guibbert was then a strong leader, even if Roussel did not dawdle behind him. The Sodi driver set a series of fastest laps and gradually returned to join him on Enzo and passed on the 12th of 18 laps. Roussel flew to a great victory against Guibbert while Sendin was up on the 3rd step of the podium thanks to his perseverance.
