The Final of the FIA Karting European Championship – KZ2 was breathtaking from the beginning to the end of its 20 laps. To the suspense for the victory on the track was added the conquest of the European title, which was in part decided at a distance. David Vidales Ajenjo (Tony Kart / Vortex) was a strong leader for three quarters of the race, while a trio of Frenchmen tried to dislodge him with sometimes overflowing energy. Emilien Denner (Sodikart / TM Racing) managed to take the lead over his compatriots Paolo Besancenez (Sodi / TM Racing) and Jean Nomblot (Sodikart / TM Racing) after a long uncertain fight.

Denner precipitated the fall of Vidales, the virtual Champion at that time, by taking 1st place on lap 17. Besancenez and Nomblot followed him shortly after, and Vidales lost several places. Riccardo Longhi (Birel ART / TM Racing) was finally 4th in front of poleman Giuseppe Palomba (Croc Promotions / TM Racing) and Giacomo Pollini (Formula K / TM Racing).
