60 Mini – Poleman Eliseo Martinez took a bit to have the better of the competition in the final. Already from the early stages he had a huge fight with Maini as the two were also joined by Muizz. But at the chequers the Spaniard managed to grab the win by 1”3.
KFJ – The best of the lot in the final turned out to be Norris despite dropping to 7th due to an early contact. His comeback was relentless.
KF – A supreme fight ensued between Briton Ben Barnicoat and French Dorian Boccolacci, which would go on till the very end of the final. Passes and counter-passes, late brakings and lead changes had the spectators jump on their seats when Barnicoat moved past Boccolacci for the lead at the last turn shadowed by Basz who also sneaks in through to second.
KZ2 – Superb comeback by Negro on the leader Zanchetta. But at the chequers the latter gave all he got to fool the DR driver on the line.
KZ1 – Max Verstappen proved to be the number 1 of the category in this early part of the season. The Dutch driver seems to have found his top form in the gearbox queen class. Hanley and Pex grabbed the remaining steps of the podium after a nerve-wracking fight with De Conto. Scary accident for Kozlinski luckily unhurt.
