In KZ, Arnaud Kozlinski got together with Jonathan Thonon at first corner, with the local hero out of the track restarting in the last positions. Really a shame as the Praga driver could have been the only one able to fight with final winner Marco Ardigò, who built a gap in the first laps and kept it until the end of the race. Second place for the consistent and determinated Rick Dreezen, and third place for Jordon Lennox-Lamb after a brilliant comeback
In KZ2, another Italian takes the spoils, this one on Crg/Maxter. It's Andrea Dalé, who dominated all races, also the final, after a bad start he easly overtook his rivals going on to win by 6" over Dane Andreas Hansen and Fabian Federer, also on Crg/Maxter.
In KF, shock for final leader Lando Norris, out with an engine failure while he was in first position looking for an almost certain victory. It was Nickals Nielsen to get a great claim for the victory of the championship. Second place in the final and also in the championship for Callum Ilott, third place for Tom Joyner, who has, togheter with Norris, 53 points in championship, 23 points behind Nielsen and 14 behind Ilott. Last round will be decisive.
In the opening round of the Academy Trophy, to preveal was the Japanese driver Kakunoshin Ota with a really nice drive in the final race. Second place for Rinus Van Kalmthout, third place for Ross Martin.
