A look back at the deciding round for KZ and KZ2 and penultimate Academy contest.

The young Academy Trophy drivers receiving advice about the start procedure before their first Qualifying Heat, from a CIK FIA delegate.

CIK FIA shows equal treatment towards all by changing the engine of the top 5 drivers with other competitors chosen at random after Qualifying Practice and each Qualifying Heat.

Solid week for Ben Hanley and his TM powered Croc Pormotion Team, P3 in the Final and news on a potential IndyCar drive for 2019.

Riccardo Longhi arguably the fastest in the KZ2 category, only a technical problem ruined what looked a certain clean sweep of Qualifying Heat wins. The 3rd step on the podium was a small consolation of what could have been...

For Adrien Renaudin P9 was enough to seal a comfortable 9 point advantage over second place Giacomo Pollini. After not scoring points in the first round at Salbris, the race winner Emilien Denner, closes the top 3 of the KZ2 Championship.

A sweet moment for first time winner Emilien Denner sharing the podium with the KZ2 "big guns" Giuseppe Palomba (P2) and Riccardo Longhi (P3).

High temperatures and scorching sunshine lead to difficult conditions onand off the circuit.

The finalists of each category receive a Medal in a ceremony before their Final, in a new for 2018 pre­race build up.

The main two protagonists of the Academy Trophy in Lonato, (527) Federico Albanese and (507) Sami Meguetounif.

The Academy Trophy seen three different podium finishers to Salbris with the Italian Federico Albanese taking a home win, the Brazilian Guilherme De Figueiredo in second and the Moroccan Suleiman Zanfari in third.

Not all that starts well, ends well. Pole Position after both Qualifying Practice and the Qualifying Heats lead to disappointment in the Final for Francesco Celenta, a technical problem forced him to retire.

The celebration finished early for Paolo De Conto after a post race stewards decision handing the race win to Fabian Federer and the Championship to Jorrit Pex.
