Final Report

Ardigo took the lead early, from Bollingtoft, and Catt in 3rd. Kozlinski was looking good for a decent result, but a coming together with another driver left him falling out of his kart and out of the race.

Catt soon passed Bollingtoft and started to hunt down Ardigo. The race at the mid race point settled down, and spread out. The gap between Catt and Ardigo stabilized at about 0.7.

Reigning champion Fore in the meantime had made it into 11th place by lap 14th after starting on the second row from the back.

Towards the end of the race Ardigo started to stretch his lead, to eventually take the title. The TonyKart/Vortex package continues to look unbeatable at this level.

However driver of the race goes to Fore who finished 7th after starting near the back.

With Bollingtoft finishing behind the two TonyKarts it made it a Vortex 1-2-3
