In fact, the KZ2 European Championship will stop in Sarno in the last round scheduled for the next few months. Useful opportunity for Genis Civico and Maksim Orlov both proactive over the weekend. The Spaniard had to deal with a difficult qualifying on Friday, and then made up for it with four excellent heats, constantly coming back and among the fastest on the track. With an eleventh, tenth, ninth and seventh place, Civico then completed the comeback with a second ninth place in the prefinal. The good speed then allowed the Spanish driver to close his final in twelfth position in full battle for the top ten in the category. A very similar weekend that of Orlov, sixth in the group at the end of qualifying and held back by a retirement in the first heat. In the remaining three direct clashes, the driver showed good maturity finishing with a twelfth, tenth and eighth position. A positive trend also maintained in the prefinal where he was in full recovery until the five-second penalty for the incorrect position of the front spoiler. Unlucky Sunday for Orlov, penalized for the same reason in the final, finished in thirty-first place. Result that he did not reflect the potential once again confirmed by the category rookie.

Fourth place under the checkered flag to complete a top level weekend.
