The weather was overcast but dry at Wackersdorf on Saturday morning, the first race for KZ1 after a Friday that was rather empty. It is about 15 ° C. The track was dry after the rain in the night, but still seemed to lack grip. Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM) led much of the first heat of the European Championship before weakening slightly at the end of the race, letting Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM), third after the start, back up to first position. Arnaud Koslinski (PCR / TM), who started fifth, gradually defeated Patrik Hajek (Praga / TM) and Fabian Federer (CRG / Maxter) before overtaking Hanley and finished 2nd in front of Federer, Hanley and Hajek, and these five drivers were significantly ahead.
Davide Fore (CRG / Maxter) had a good performance in sixth position ahead of Rick Dreezen (Tony Kart / Vortex), who lost time fighting with Paolo De Conto (Birel / BMB) who was 11th, while Jonathan Thonon (CRG / Maxter) in 8th set the fastest lap, 47” 804, a good tenth ahead of Dreezen. In 9th was Joey Hanssen (Lenzo / TM), and 10th was Bas Lammers (Praga / Parilla). A clash in the middle of the circuit eliminated Yannick De Brabander (Formula K / TM), Armand Convers (Kosmic / Vortex) and Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) on the first lap.
