Kas Haverkort has been extremely fast in most of his races ever since he appeared in international karting last year, but either due to bad luck or lack of experience he has struggled to deliver the results. He’s a very fast, smart and motivated driver and should be expected to start showing some really strong results soon.

The face when you get taken out while making good progress. To be honest I was there but was following another group so I didn’t see what happened, but for sure the driver’s facial expression inside the helmet and the body language say a lot.

It was surprising to see a marshal struggling to understand why the kart wouldn’t move easily when pulling it from the front side.

Christopher Lulham put a great performance all weekend, and won everything except one heat where his engine failed, made it back to the front in the prefinal, and was leading the final until he got taken out by a competitors mistake.

Jeremy Iglesias pulls the covers off his kart on the grid. I haven’t noticed a lot of drivers coming to the grid in a covered kart. I can’t think of many things you’d want to hide at this stage of the race, but can see how much you’d want to protect the kart from the sun. The Frenchman was really fast however and was expected to race for the win but didn’t have the pace and while he did lead several laps, he finished outside the podium in 4th.

Ulysse de Pauw had a spectacular engine failure in the middle of the straight line while he was making some good progress. Was he pushing too hard? He still managed to finish 3rd overall in the series standings.

Amazing Karol Basz pulled a big lead off everyone else as soon as he passed to first and went on to win the race!

Simo Puhakka was nearly written off before this race, after a sudden dismissal from CRG and switch to Kosmic. He was dominant straight away with his new team, showing his great skill, leading almost every lap he drove, just for his engine to fail him halfway through the final. Expect a lot from him next race!

Following Puhakka’s retirement, teammate Patrik Hajek was there to pick up the victory after a great drive and make it 2 in a row!
