Contested on the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans (FRA) on 28th and 29th October, 2017, the third and final Competition of the CIK-FIA European Superkart Championship was cut off from Race 2 without changing the outcome of the season.
Peter Elkmann had indeed secured his triumph by winning the first Race. After narrow failures in the past two years, Elkmann, arguably the fastest this season, took four wins out of five to claim the second title of his career.

On Sunday morning, the weather was cloudy and sometimes wet. Delayed, the second Race was to take place on a drying track, while all of the participants had kept the slick tyres. An incident occurred during the first lap (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blqqj5xfNXk ) and the necessary intervention blocked the track. The red flag paused the race at first, before a definitive cancellation.

The CIK-FIA Superkart Mono Cylinder Cup was won by Ford, also with four wins and 100 points against Bennett (80 pts) and Platt (70 pts).
