Behind Al Dhaeri, an excellent Rocco Mazzola (PRK/Tony Kart-Iame) made up for the lost ground in Race1 as he could not run qualifying. The third place went to Matteo Luvisi (Newman Motorsport/Tony Kart-Iame), while classification leader Manuel Scognamiglio (Gamoto/Tony Kart-Iame) was eighth after spinning due to a contact.

Scognamiglio bounced back in Race2 getting the most of the inverted grid. He started from the pole position and won the race followed by Al Dhaheri, while Mazzola went again on the podium in third place.

The Comanducci-Carenini duel continues in IAME X30 Senior.

Classification leader Cristian Comanducci (PRK/Tony Kart-Iame) won the sprint to the line in IAME X30 Senior. He won the heats and completed a good Race1 followed by Danny Carenini (Autoeuropeo/Tony Kart-Iame), who was second by just 0.046s.

The third place went to Carlo Aldera (TBKart/TBKart-Iame), while Vittorio Maria Russo (Team Driver/KR-Iame) was fourth and Erika Lavazza (PKT/Kosmic-Iame) fifth.

Riccardo Iannello on top in Rok Junior.

Riccardo Iannello (KGT/Tony Kart-Vortex) dominated the opener of Rok Junior winning qualifying heats and both finals. Iannello led Davide Larini (Tony Kart-Vortex) in Race1, as the latter inherited the position due to the penalty handed to the two Zanchi Motorsport drivers Antonio Pio Abbate and Andrea Ladina, that respectively ended third and fourth.
