On a dry track, the usual suspects come back into the spotlight. Starting with the Belgian Van Langendonck in OKJ, who from the second row climbed with ease to surpass even the race leader Martinese, who was the absolute protagonist in Saturday's heats. In the second pre-final, Costoya recovered after an unlucky start and secured the second position behind the undisturbed Kamyab, with the satisfaction for the Spaniard of having set the fastest lap time in 51"801. The final will see Martinese and Kamyab lined up on the front row ahead of Costoya and Sala, with Van Langendonck and Kelleher in third.
In OK, Turney confirms himself as the driver to beat on French soil, while Gomez, second at the finish of Super Heat A, returns to prominence with the dry track. For the Brazilian, reaching the final podium would already be a good achievement considering his starting position in the third row surrounded by opponents who have shown their strength. Morgatto also performs well, unable to keep up with the pace of the top two, but the podium is an opportunity not to be missed for him. In Super Heat B, Walther, although second in the pre-final won by the Colombian Hanna, maintains the pole position for the final lineup. In second, Morgatto and McLaughlin, and in third, Gomez and Consani. Hoping that it doesn't rain again to fully experience the finals, which promise to be competitive thanks to the return of the contenders in the first three rows of the grid. The first OKJ final will start at 3:00 PM.
