Ferenc Kancsar defends Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals DD2 title
Hungarian karting star Ferenc Kancsar took his second straight Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals title in the DD2 class at Sarno.
Kancsar won the first of two pre-finals to start the main race from the front row, but it was Kiwi Josh Hart who took the lead at the start.
He was soon demoted however, as Kancsar and Christian Sorensen took turns in leading in the early stages of the race.
The order between the duo was unchanged for the second half, with the Hungarian leading.
Although he couldn't shake off the Dane, it was Kancsar who came out on top to win the DD2 title for the second year in a row.
Sorensen and Hart completed the podium ahead of Haralds Garkaklis and Pascal Marschall.

Frenchman Adrien Renaudin was his main rival for most of the race, but he was eventually shuffled back in the order.
Czech Petr Bezel and Turkish youngster Berkay Besler completed the podium.

However, Hoggard was penalized as well, handing second place to Hungarian Zsombor Kovacs.
Frenchman Enzo Valente completed the podium.
