Martinese (OKJ) at the photo finish, Turney leads in OK

Columns: Races
The Italian (KR/Iame) rounded off the French trip in style, clinching the maximum points and firmly establishing himself as one of the contenders for the European OKJ title. In the Senior category, Turney (KR/Iame) claimed victory and jumped to the top of the provisional standings.

Iacopo Martinese seized the final, managing to edge past Costoya and then Van Langendonck, who was about to overtake him just before the finish line. A remarkable Coronel ended up on the third step of the podium, having climbed from the ninth starting row, and notably shaving off 2-3 tenths of a second per lap from his opponents, clocking times of 51.5-51.6 seconds. Martinese thus enters the battle for the continental title (120 points), while Van Langendonck consolidates his leadership with 162 points, ahead of Costoya (142), who missed the opportunity to step onto the podium. In the OK category, Joe Turney made the most of his pole position and clinched the victory, allowing him to leap to the top of the championship standings, surpassing Gomez in the process. Third across the finish line was the Brazilian from CRG, who was later demoted to fourth place following a 5-second penalty for a suspected overtaking under yellow flag conditions. In a final that didn't offer many thrills, Gomez managed to overtake Morgatto in the closing stages, who then found himself on the podium. Gomez remains second in the championship standings, trailing Turney by 18 points. Wherrell also performed well, finishing second in the race and third in the championship.
