At last the sun shows up in Genk in time for the second heat of the KZ category. With Verstappen out right after the start, Lennox builds up a gap which he’d keep all the way to the checkered flag and will start the prefixal from pole.

Following a hesitation at the start, Verstappen gets taken by Pex and Lennox at the first corner, and then has a contact with Abbasse before the next one having to retire there and then. Pex is in the lead, but in a matter of few laps Lennox, Leclerc, Abbasse and Ardigò move past him. The order will change only beyond the top-5 positions, with Hanley losing the battle for 6th to Thonon and Lammers (later excluded for being underweight) with 2 laps to go.
The intermediate classification sees Lennox-Lamb and Pex sharing the front row for tomorrow's prefinal, Ardigò and Leclerc the second, Thonon and Abbasse the third. Verstappen will start off from 9th.
