Genk – FKS Honda Cadet – Rnd 7

1st in A Final

After a period of dry weather, the rain returned just as the slick shod karts left the dummy grid for the Final.

From pole position Ticktum took advantage of the clear track to take the lead and he never looked back, at one point leading by 10s for his fourth win of the year, which helped reduce his championship deficit to Anderton.

Behind the runaway leader, Ahmed ran 2nd until his nosecone fell off following a brush with Clay, which prompted a pitstop, leaving Clay in a solitary 2nd. Quicker than the leader in the closing laps Clay finished 4.57s behind Ticktum and more than 5s ahead of everyone else. Anderton and William Taylforth emerged in 3rd and 4th, separated by inches at the flag. Macdonald and Oliver York completed the top six.
