The 2019 season ends by bringing to the archive a few certainties and other surprises that, presumably, will also be reflected in 2020.

The FIA 2019 season has just closed its doors, once again featuring yet another thrilling year with all the best of international karting battling it out on track. The season just ended was one of confirmations at the summit with the double title of Lorenzo Travisanutto in OK and the great return of Birel Art to the top of the world with Marjin Kremers in KZ. Many emotions were thus experienced in the four categories and many also significant misses from the most important karting scene.

Impeccable Travisanutto

With these premises, we thus reach the season's most important competition: the World Championship in Finland, an award hardly appreciated by the circus, while the event itself was marred by not a few controversies due to safety in the dire, wet conditions.

Everchanging weather conditions rewarded Minì, who stands out in qualifying ahead of Valtanen and Josh Dufek. Patterson is only 31, Travisanutto 13th, with a definitive advantage over his rival.

Rain in the Heats rewards Valtanen, with Travisanutto who climbs to the front row, while Minì slips back due to one too many errors. With a miracle, Patterson emerges almost unscathed from the heats, climbing up to P12, but the Final is a two-man match: Lorenzo Travisanutto against the home hero Juho Valtanen. The latter maintains the pole, but after a few laps he gives up to the Italian's offensive. The two are at loggerheads, but Lorenzo's speed is matchless, and he wins. Immediately afterwards, while expecting Valtanen to return to the charge, it is Taylor Barnard (Rosberg Racing) who arrives like a bolt from the blue and surprises the Finn who also loses the third position to Harry Thompson (RFM).

The story practically over with Travisanutto who glows with glee, driving with that margin of safety that allows him to administer the race in complete tranquility. At the stroke of the 25th lap, Lorenzo Travisanutto confirms himself – once again - world champion, thus repeating the 2018 title, a feat achieved only by Marco Ardigò and Nyck de Vries.
