CIK-FIA World Karting Championship
De Vries is out with technical problems at the third lap after a very poor start. The Dutch driver is 7th after the first corner, but within a couple of laps he's ready to make the move for the second position. Then disaster strikes: Nyck is forced in the pits, likely for an engine failure. Camponeschi jumps on top of the podium with Tiene and D'Agosto to make an all-Italian podium.
Camponeschi takes a very well deserved win ahead of Albon and Basz, with De Vries author of a good comeback from the back of the field to 6th.
CIK-FIA World Cup for KF2
Italian driver Loris Spinelli grabs the World Cup for KF2 ahead of Danish driver Christian Sorensen and the other Italian Antonio Giovinazzi. Very exciting battle unfolds in the early stages between the two Italian drivers, with Spinelli edging away at half way through the race to take the chequered flag undisturbed. Giovinazzi is second with few corners left, when the Danish moves past him with a huge roar of the crowd. Tanart from 3rd on starting grid is off the pace and can’t do better than 8th at the end, while Moller-Madsen has a nightmare start from 4th with a technical problem that forces him to rejoin at the back of the field in the formation lap. Final compromised. Fastest lap is stopped by 5th placed man Paolo Ippolito (1’05”773), with Cucco, Beelmaziz and Vigorito following in few tenths
CIK-FIA World Cup for KF3
Great weekend for Leclerc, who crowns the brilliant work with the World Cup title. The driver from Monaco has a big scrap with Verstappen in the early stages, and the Dutch is on the grass and later forced to retire. Second place to Briton O'keeffe, while Ocon looses the third place with few laps to go and Scott takes advantage of it.
