Kostamo gladfully collected the 5,000 euros prize pot, King of Imatra watch whilst Hickman in second, made it four podium finishes from his first Imatranajo racing venture.

Ville Valtonen took third, Nico Muller banked fourth with remaining race finishers been Laurent Hoffmann, Markus Karlsson and 2021 Cookstown Grand Final race winner Forest Dunn.
