The final stage of the races saw Taponen taking the second spot ahead of Turney. Bruno Del Pino made several comebacks during the eliminatory heats before a stop forced him to start the Final from the last rows of the grid.

In OK-Junior, Harley Keeble continued his positive streak of results. After the podiums obtained in the first round of the WSK Euro Series and in the last round of the WSK Super Master Series, the British driver collected an excellent second place in Genk’s Final. Keeble perfectly jumped from fifth on the starting grid, threatened the winner until the chequered flag, and finished within a few tenths from the winner. In addition, he also gained two victories and a second position in the eliminatory heats.

Alexander Gubenko constantly fought in the top 20 during the whole weekend and showed great potential also during the Final. In the Qualifying Heats, he was able to collect a second position as best result.
