With the track changing rapidly (wet/damp), the races hide challenges at every turn. Conditions that began to define the competition from the official practices where the best in OK was Romanian Cosma (48”999) ahead of Morgatto, McLaughlin, Matveev, and Turney. With the heats underway, it is indeed the latter (KR/Iame) who stands out in the standings, confirming his comfort on these wet or low-grip track conditions. Following him are Walther, Morgatto, McLaughlin, Pavan, Consani, and Gomez. The Brazilian from CRG, who dominated the first round, risks losing the temporary championship lead. In the Junior category, Iacopo Martinese (KR/Iame), after setting the fastest time in practice, reiterated his dominance even after challenging heats and tomorrow he presents himself to the final phase as the driver to beat. He'll have to watch out for Kelleher, Costoya, and Kamyab. Meanwhile, Belgian Van Langendonck will have to climb from tenth position in an attempt to defend his championship lead, especially from Costoya. For the final phase, conditions do not guarantee a dry track. The Super Heats are scheduled to start at 10:45 with the OKJ category. While the finals will kick off from 15:00 onwards.
