Jordan Prior (Prime Powerteam / Birel ART) emerged victorious in the hotly contested Briggs LO206 Senior category. At times during the 15-lap final it was a six kart gaggle at the front, but Prior and Zachary Linsell (MGM) were able to breakaway as the race wore on. By just .120, Prior edged Linsell at the stripe, followed by Mickael Aubin (PSL / Birel ART).

In Junior, the 360 Motorsport team from Canada swept the podium with Gianluca Savaglio, Nicky Palladino, and Carsyn Massey, all aboard the Intrepid chassis. Savaglio, who didn't record a time in qualifying, climbed 14 spots in his first heat race to win as the rest of the field took notice. Starting from seventh, Savaglio again carved his way to the front by a mere tenth of a second over his teammate.
