Victorious in the morning Prefinal from seventh on the grid, Freddie Slater (Fusion Motorsport) reminded his rivals why is the current Series’ leader by clinching the Final win of the weekend. From Pole position, the Brit took the best start and lead the totality of the 13 laps of the race with Sebastian NG (Team Driver Racing Kart) right on his tail!
The Panamanian, fastest of all in Friday’s Qualifying and on top of the provisional classification after the heats, took the upper hand against Edu Robinson (Fusion Motorsport) in the opening lap and started chasing the leader with the British driver in his shadow. As the race opened up, so did the gap between Robinson and the leading duet with Slater keeping the lead against NG who would not give up until the chequered flag that they crossed split by 0.234 seconds.
Robinson settled for third place ahead of Lucas Fluxa (Praga Espana Motorsport), who lost two positions at the start but managed to keep Rene Lammers (PDB) at bay. Sixth at the flag, Sacha Van’t Pad Bosch (Team Driver Racing Kart) preceded Pol Chaos Rivero (FA Racing Spain), Noah Lisle (Fusion Motorsport), Adrian Ferrer Benito (Praga Espana Motorsport) and Alfie Slater (Fusion Motorsport) closing up the Top Ten.
In the overall point standings, Freddie Slater leads with 260 points in front of Lucas Fluxa, 237, with Sebastian NG climbing up to third at 234, ahead of Edu Robinson with 215.
