Pedro Hiltbrand (Tony Kart-Vortex) grabs the holeshot and leads ahead of 2016 WSK Super Master Series champion Lorenzo Travisanutto (Zanardi-Parilla). Great start by the Brit Tom Joyner (Zanardi-Parilla), back in the direct drive class, who gains four positions and settle for third in the early phases of the race. On lap 3 Joyner takes the runner up position, while Travisanutto gets passed by Finn Paavo Tonteri (Tony Kart-Vortex). Behind them David Vidales (Tony Kart-Vortex) tries to close the gap with the leading group. Joyner starts fighting against Hiltbrand and this fight shuffles the whole group: Joyner takes the lead followed by Tonteri, behind them Vidales gets the better of Travisanutto and Hiltbrand, who passes from first to sixth behind Frenchman Adam Eteki (Zanardi-Parilla). On lap 12 reigning world champion Pedro Hiltbrand is forced to sand and his weekend is over. Joyner takes the chequered flag ahead of Vidales and Tonteri.
Clean start in prefinal B with Luka Lippkau (Zanardi-Parilla) and Finlay Kenneally (Energy Corse-Vortex) who open a little gap over Clement Novalak (Tony Kart-Vortex), Artem Lobanenko (Tony Kart-Vortex) and David Schumacher (Tony Kart-Vortex). On lap 3 the 2016 OK Junior European champion Kenneally puts his Energy Corse ahead of Lippkau’s Zanardi and Novalak joins the battle for the lead. It takes only two laps for the Brit to grab the head of the race, followed by Lippkau and Kenneally. The Energy Corse’s driver has a technical problem and slips back in the order. Novalak leads unchallenged, while behind his shoulders Ulysse De Pauw (Kosmic-Parilla), David Schumacher and Luka Lippkau start fighting for the second spot creating a huge group of drivers really close each other. Under the chequered flag, Novalak takes home the win followed by De Pauw and David Schumacher.
