Iglesias crowned world champion

At the end of the spectacular Finals, the Frenchman Jeremy Iglesias of Formula K was crowned FIA Karting World Champion - KZ.

The start was postponed by ten minutes to allow a brief rain shower to pass. Iglesias started in the lead and, after hardly defending the position for a few laps, he finally took advantage of the spectacular struggle between the drivers from P2 to P5 to pull out a gap of about a second which he managed until the finish line.

Iglesias brought on a top world podium the combination between OMP racewear (suit, gloves, boots, underwear) and Bell helmet. It's the first time since the beginning of the OMP/Bell era.
