In Final A Karlis overtook Viktor Gars for the 7th. Then he used battle between Igor Scavlev and Anatoly Hramov to take over Igor's P6. Later he was already fighting with Anatoly for the 5th. A fight between two Champions. But not only Karlis couldn't pass Mr. Hramov, he also let Mr. Scavlev back to take the last medal spot.
 
In the front of the pack Martin Krus took the lead from Cezary already on lap 1. Mr. Blawat a couple of times was very close to take the lead back, but all attempts were unsuccessful for him. In the end of the day Martin Krus won the stage 1 of 2016 season!

Due to the way how track owners run their system it happened so that a few racers were driving the same gokart more than once. We usually try to avoid this kind of thing, but it isn't always in our power. There were also a couple of warning showed during the race by track marshals. Those warnings will not stay as official ones on the driver's account, since they weren't issued by Championship organizers after the race.
