Opposite situation of KZ2: dry track and drivers with rain tyres. Baby Race’s Finlay Kenneally (Tony Kart-Vortex) holds the first position when the green light comes out followed by Norwegian Dennis Hauger (CRG-Parilla), Noah Milell (Kosmic-Vortex), Sami Taoufik (FA Kart-Vortex), Pavel Bulantsev (Tony Kart-Vortex) and Karol Basz (Kosmic-Vortex). The battle for the leadership immediately flares up and Milell spins and finishes his race.
Basz leapfrogs up to third behind Hauger and ahead of Taoufik, Glenn Van Berlo (CRG-Parilla) and Pedro Hiltbrand (Tony Kart-Vortex).
On lap 3 Kenneally pulls away while Basz attacks Hauger for the second position, but behind them Hiltbrand is coming fast ahead of his championship rival Taoufik. After a couple of laps, Basz overtakes Hauger and takes the second spot while Hiltbrand is forced to retire because of a technical failure to his chain!
It seems to be done for Sami Taoufik, but behind his shoulders Lorenzo Travisanutto is giving all he has to take as many points as possible and in just 8 laps the Italian steps in third position, but is not enough to claim the championship win.
