Already winner of the Euro Series in 2018, Mark Kimber kept his crown in the International Competition organized by RGMMC by claiming his second victory this season in the final race of the weekend held on the Sologne Karting, in the beautiful region of the Loir-et-Cher.
From fourth on the grid after the morning Prefinal, the Strawberry Racing driver patiently made his way up to the first step of the podium by overtaking his closest rivals as the race went on towards its conclusion.
Five laps from the chequered flag, the Brit took the upper hand against the polesitter Sean Butcher (KR Sport) that he quickly put far away behind on his way to the finish line that he crossed 1.7 seconds from the Friday polesitter and Prefinal winner.
Callum Bradshaw (Fusion Motorsport), despite leading for the majority of the race, reached the flag in third position ahead of Lewis Gilbert (Persistence) and Morgan Porter (Msport). Ruben Moya (PSR) had a strong run from 18th on the grid up to 6th, preceding his countryman Filip Vava (KR-Sport) who was followed by Thomas Fleming, Henkie Kalteren (JJ Racing) and Elie Goldstein (VDK Racing) who climbed up the entire field from the 30th position to the final Top Ten!
