Columns: Races
The European KZ and KZ2 Championship ends at the Genk (BEL) circuit with two thrilling races. Stan Pex (KZ) and David Trefilov (KZ2) win the race, Marijn Kremers (KZ) and Viktor Gustavsson (KZ2) are European Champions.

The Genk circuit still offers an important trophy in the FIA ​​Karting season with the worthy conclusion of a European Championship that is not at all obvious.

KZ - Pex what a masterpiece, Kremers still King
The premier class animated the last part of the Belgian morning which saw the times of the finals completely revolutionized with respect to custom. The KZ race offered the karting public the maximum expression of the fight for the title and uncertainty until the end. Wins a great Stan Pex (KR) on the track that can be considered a home for the Dutch driver. A champion's race that he took in hand in the seventh lap with a great overtaking on Kremers and then controlled it until the end with six tenths of an advantage. Pex therefore puts the point on the season ahead of the hero of the day Marijn Kremers who after exactly 365 days takes home yet another title, this time winning the European Championship. Recall that Kremers shouldn't even have taken part in this season due to his single-seater commitments, an incredible ending that rewards driver Ricciardo Kart. Third overall position for Jorrit Pex (KR) to complete an all-family podium after his brother Stan's first place and after the European title won last year. Top five sanctioned by Noah Milell (Tony Kart) in any case positive for the whole weekend, fifth Adrien Renaudin (Sodi Kart) at times among the suspects for the podium. Bitter race for Alex Irlando (Birel Art), Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart) and Matteo Viganò (Lennox). If the last two have never been able to really recover positions with respect to the start, Alex Irlando recriminates a podium that could be within his reach, especially after the great race to the assault after a start that had seen him in the first meters with almost four wheels on the grass. Irlando tried in every way to recover positions to close the gap on Kremers by finishing fifth, then relegated to tenth due to the spoiler penalty. The Italian still took home the title of Vice European Champion with 45 points compared to Kremers' 51, Puhakka third overall.

KZ2 - Trefilov dominates and Gustavsson becomes Champion
In the first race of the day, it was immediately a fight for the general classification but not for the first position. After yesterday's great performance, David Trefilov (SRP Racing) was able to dominate the race by finishing with more than three seconds ahead of the competition, an important victory that opens the doors of the fight to the World Championship weekend. In second position concludes Viktor Gustavsson (Lennox Racing) after a race carried out always and constantly in third position fighting with the surprise of the day, Kristijan Habulin (TB Kart). The unprecedented duo animated the whole race with the Swede who had the best only in the very last laps, managing to realize the advantage already obtained in Adria, becoming European Champion to the delight of Jordon Lennox-Lamb in the first year with the Charles Leclerc colors Kart. Third after the Habulin comeback, Arthur Carbonnel (CPB) and Giuseppe Palomba (Birel Art) finish the top five after the usual great comeback of 12 positions. To underline the unfortunate out of Simone Cunati (Modena Kart) and Leonardo Marseglia (Birel Art), among the most positive of the weekend and returning from a race that cost them dearly. Cunati was fighting for the podium position, despite the zero in the standings, the 2019 Italian Champion still wins the title of Vice European Champion improving last season.
