KZ2 – Bertuca is the main contender to the win.
Throughout the qualifying practice, practice sessions, and heats, one name stands out: Cristian Bertuca (#139 Bertuca/BirelART-TM), going from the pole position to victory in all three of his heats. In close pursuit are his teammate, the Romanian Daniel Vasile (#150 KCS/BirelART-TM) with one victory, the Ukrainian Slavik Putiatin (#141 CPB Sport/Sodi-Tm) with one victory, and the other BirelART representative, Riccardo Longhi, securing three second-place finishes. Also making a strong showing is Giacomo Pollini (#131 NGM Motorsport/Kalì Kart-Tm), who managed one victory. All of them have the potential to play a leading role, but Bertuca currently appears to be the top candidate for victory.

MINI Gr3 U10 – Legenky dominates qualifying.
In the MINI Gr3 Under 10 category, Oleksandr Legenkyi (#616 Team Driver/KR-Iame) achieves a perfect score. The young Ukrainian, after securing pole position in qualifying, also wins both of his heats, the first one ahead of the surprise of the weekend, Alessandro Nanni (#634 Gamoto/EKS-Tm), and the second one ahead of Estonian driver Mark Martin Loomets (#653 AMC Tech Racing/BirelART-Tm) and Niccolò Perico (#601 Energy Corse/Energy-Tm). In the other heat, the victory goes to Achille Rea (#641 Tony Kart Racing Team/Tony Kart-Vortex) over David Moscardi (#651 AMC Tech Racing/BirelART-Tm). In the heat standings, Legenkyi holds the top spot, followed by Loomets, Perico, Moscardi, Rea and Nanni.

MINI Gr.3 – Calleja leads the pack, but Crisan is recovering ground.
There was a great battle in the MINI Gr.3 category between the Australian driver William Calleja (#510 BabyRace/Parolin-Iame) and the Canadian racer Ilie Crisan Tristan (#528 Tony Kart Racing Team/Tony Kart-Vortex). Calleja leads after the heats with one win and one second-place finish. Crisan, who secured pole position in qualifying, faced some challenges, finishing 12th in the first heat, but he partially made up for it with a victory in his second heat. In second place, Ludovico Mazzola (#519 Tony Kart Racing Team/Tony Kart-Vortex) scored the same points as the American driver Devin Walz (#506 BabyRace/Parolin-Iame) and the Polish racer Antoni Ociepa (3DK Umbria/Righetti Ridolfi-Iame). Pietro Bagutti (#523 Gamoto/EKS-Tm), who had the fastest time in the first qualifying session, is in fifth place.

OKJ – Van Langendonck leads the way.
The OK-Junior category has been dominated by the newly crowned world champion, Dries Van Langendonck (#316 Forza Racing/Exprit-Tm). He secured pole position in qualifying and won both of his heats. Ludovico Busso (#308 Ward Racing/Tony Kart-Vortex) also claimed a victory in one of his heats and, with a fourth-place finish in his other heat, is currently in second place in the standings. Tied for third place with Busso is Filippo Sala (#343 Ricky Flynn/LN-Tm), while the Czech driver Jindrich Pesl (#310 Monster K Factory/Intrepid-Tm) is in fourth place. The Brit Lewis Wherrell (#317 Forza Racing/Exprit/Tm) dropped to 14th place due to a retirement in the last heat.

X30 Junior – Castellozzi is the leader on the dry.
Matteo Melis (#228 TBKart Racing Team/TBKart-Iame), after securing the pole position on the wet track on Friday, managed to win the first heat in the rain. However, he lost the lead with a tenth-place finish in the second heat. His teammate, Roberto Castellozzi, who recorded the second-fastest time in qualifying and secured two victories in the dry conditions of the second and third heats, took the lead. In the provisional standings, the Bulgarian driver Lyuboslav Ruykov (#210 Team Driver/Tony Kart-Iame) is in second place, followed by Mattia D’Erme (#202 MD/Tony Kart-Iame) and the Swede Fred Saareks (#204 AD Motorsport/Energy-Iame). In the final heat, Melis made a recovery and finished fifth.

X30 Senior – Ensgard in the lead, Comanducci and Ferrari chase him.
The situation in the X30 Senior class is quite uncertain, with three different winners in the three qualifying heats. Francesco Marenghi (#421 DCR Motorsport/Tony Kart-Iame) won the qualifying session, but the victory of the first heat went to Andrea Barbieri (#424 TBKart/TBKart-Iame). The second heat was won by the Swedish driver Bastian Ensgard (#401 AD Motorsport/Energy-Iame), and the third was taken by Riccardo Ferrari (#412 M2 Racing/Gillard-Iame). In the provisional standings after the heats, Ensgard leads, thanks to a third and a second-place finish. Cristian Comanducci (#408 PRK/Tony Kart-Iame) made a remarkable comeback, securing the second position, ahead of Riccardo Ferrari in third place. Marenghi is currently seventh.
