Unpredictable result in both the categories
England will host an unpredictable Championship finale. In KF the Danish Nicklas Nielsen (Kosmic-Vortex-Dunlop) leads a pack off five pretenders to the title: he is 9 points ahead of the British Callum Ilott (Zanardi-Parilla-Dunlop) after his recent win in Genk (B). They are both closely pursued by the English Tom Joyner (Zanardi-Parilla-Dunlop) and Lando Norris (FA Kart-Vortex-Dunlop), who hope to grab the title as well as the Finnsih Niko Kari (Tony Kart-Vortex). In KFJ, the British Enaam Ahmed (FA Kart-Vortex) is the leader with 53 points, only five points ahead of his fellow countryman Daniel Ticktum (Zanardi-Parilla-Vega) and 7 ahead of the American Devlin Defrancesco (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega). In Kristinastad (S), in the last round, Ahmed and Defrancesco had a hard time: they saw both Ticktum and the German Mick Junior (Tony Kart-Vortex) getting really close in the general standing. Also the American Logan Sargeant (FA Kart) and the Swedish Anton Haaga (Kosmic-LKE) stand a good chance in the race towards the title.
