Viktor Gustavsson (Birel ART/TM) started the day in the best possible circumstances by winning his two Qualifying Heats, which ensured him pole position for the KZ2 Final ahead of Simone Cunati (Birel ART/TM), Giuseppe Palomba (Birel ART/TM) and Paavo Tonteri (Tony Kart/Vortex).
The Final was to confirm the same hierarchy. Gustavsson was the fastest and won in the colors of the Leclerc by Lennox Racing team with a substantial lead of more than six seconds and the fastest lap in the race.
The gap between Cunati, Palomba, and Tonteri narrowed as the race approached the finish, but the positions on the line remained unchanged. Cunati was therefore the highest placed Italian.
Tom Leuillet (Praga/TM) completed the top five ahead of Davide De Marco (KR/IAME). Like two other drivers, Danilo Albanese (KR/IAM) was late to the grid and was not allowed to start.
