There was a perfect start for Kush Maini (Tony Kart / Vortex) in the KF-Junior Prefinal in the 2015 Margutti Trophy, closely followed by Noah Watt (FA Kart / Vortex). A clash cleared the ranks in the pack. Teddy Wilson (Zanardi / Parilla) took the lead on the 2nd lap ahead of Maini, while Watt fell down the grid. Ivan Shvetsov (Tony Kart / Vortex) got 3rd place ahead of Zahar Slutskiy (DR / TM) and Ivan Grigoryev (Kosmic / Vortex). Maini then took the lead in a boisterous group of six drivers. David Vidales (Energy / TM) and Artem Petrov (DR / TM) were looking good, and were close to Lorenzo Colombo (Tony Kart / LKE) in 7th and 8th places.


Maini escaped while Shetsov and Wilson competed for second position. Slutskiy gave up ground to Grigoryev and Vidales who ended up 4th and 5th. Marta Garcia (FA Kart / TM) moved into the top 10 by passing Petr Ptacek (Formula K / Parilla). Petrov, the fastest on the track, continued his effort to pass Colombo and Garcia for 6th. The fight intensified for 3rd place but Maini was still leading by 2.8'' ahead of Wilson and Grigoryev. Vidales was back to 4th from Petrov, who gained 13 places up to the last lap, Garcia finished 6th, Shevtsov 7th and Colombo 8th. The unfortunate Watt moved up 10 positions, but still ended up 16th. Petrov is under investigation.

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.
