The best performance for the CRG colors was the one of the Dutchman Kas Haverkort with the CRG Keijzer Racing team, sixth in the Final after a hard-fought race, taking even the lead in the first laps and fighting for the podium until a contact compromised his race.

Hard weekend for Pedro Hiltbrand, whose sixth time in the Qualifying practice was canceled for an error in stamping one tire, so he had to recover in the heats starting always from the last position but constantly showing a great pace in all the conditions. The results’ regularity allowed the CRG Spanish driver to recover positions until achieving the qualification for the Final where he ended 15th after recovering 10 places.

Bad luck for Gabriel Bortoleto instead, forced to retire at the beginning of the Final for a contact after being very fast during all practices and heats. For just one penalty, Ayrton Fontecha missed the qualification for the Final after an accident in the last heat. In any case, the missed qualification for the final doesn’t diminish Fontecha’s good performance and the satisfaction of being fast for the whole weekend. In OK-Junior, Lucas Pons couldn’t qualify despite several good results and as a contributing factor a retirement in one heat.

The victory in the two Finals went to Gabriele Minì in OK and Andrea Kimi Antonelli in OK-Junior. The titles of the European Championships were achieved by Lorenzo Travisanutto in OK and Marcus Amand in OK-Junior.

The next FIA Karting meeting for the OK and OK-Junior classes will take place on September 8th in Alahärma, Finland, for the World Championship.
