Run in mostly dry conditions, the races were only disrupted by sudden rainfalls halfway through the afternoon, forcing drivers to switch to more appropriate tires for wet conditions.

Fourth-fastest in Qualifying, Gabriele Mini’ (Parolin/TM) showed again the extent of his pace around the 1384 meter-long Le Mans layout with three consecutive second places and a win in his closing race of the day. Second overall, Kobe Pauwels (KR/IAME) converted his maiden OK Pole position into three successful results ahead of the Ward Racing teammates Dino Beganovic (Tony Kart/Vortex), taking three victories, and Kirill Smal (Tony Kart/Vortex) who took two wins for himself.

The reigning World Champion Lorenzo Travisanutto (KR/IAME) followed in provisional fifth thanks to a string of strong results, Kas Haverkort (CRG/IAME) showed a great deal of pace with one win and another Top Two-finish while the current class leader Dexter Patterson (KR/IAME) collected precious points regarding the title fight before the last chapter taking place this Sunday.

Luigi Coluccio (Birel ART/TM), Sebastian Montoya (Tony Kart/Vortex), and Taylor Barnard (KR/IAME) all ended up within the provisional Top Ten of the category, the remaining heat victories going to Morgan Porter (13th, KR/IAME) and Joseph Turney (17th, Tony Kart/Vortex).
