Kremers tops bizarre KZ Qualifying

A timing and scoring glitch brought out a red flag early.

The KZ qualifying session went off nearly 90 minutes later than expected and very early in the run I'm being told that a timing and scoring glitch caused red flags to wave so that officials could fix the system. It's unclear if that affected anybody's run, but it did make the day just a bit longer for everyone.

Birel ART had their man dialed in, turning in a 40.204 in his sixth lap. Not even two-hundredths of a second behind is the Swedish Tony Kart pilot of Noah Milell --  a regular front-runner in the single speed OK category in Europe. The CRGs of Paolo De Conto and Kyle Wick were also inside a tenth of a second to Kremers, followed by the DR Kart of Maximilian Paul.
