In the third and last showdown, Enzo Valente (FRA) was the fastest of the three finalists and the most consistent in not making mistakes. His attitude, his mind and his physical condition were also appreciated during the two days, he finished ahead of Nicky Hays (USA) and Luigi Coluccio (ITA).
Very moved at the awards ceremony in the FFSA Academy facilities, Enzo received a check symbolizing the endowment of Richard Mille, who offers him the 2019 season in the French F4 Championship. Thanks to the support and passion of Richard Mille, this is the first time that a manufacturer, Birel ART, has been able to offer a steering wheel of this type to the best drivers of its brand and a prestigious award that validates the concept of the first real bridge between the karting and the cars. Enzo will wear the colors of Richard Mille during the next season.
