The fifth round of the FBA championship took place in Rucphen at the club Mac De Baanbrekers. The weather was awesome and the heat could give the drivers some issues at this fast track. In the Efra class it was Olivier Bultynck who took TQ in front of Nick Joosens and Thomas Stockman. Olivier started well in the first final and Nick tried his best to follow and put some pressure on him but Ollie was a little bit faster and could make a gap on Nick. Thomas followed the two but struggled with his car and later on also scored a DNF as the had to retire in lap 18. Meanwhile Rico Claeys who started 8th on the grid was in third place. Ollie took the win and Nick came in second with Rico taking the third spot.

Come the start of the second final the race for Ollie was already over in the first lap as his motor broke. Meanwhile Thomas found more grip and speed and was attacking Nick who did everything he could to hold of Thomas. Mitchel van Es was now in third place and in a fight with local Patrick Jongenelis. At the end of leg 2 Nick managed to take the win just in front of Thomas and Mitchel. For the last and deciding final it was Thomas who found the right setup for his car and right at the start he overtook Nick and was in chase of Ollie who eagerly wanted to win and therefore kept up the pressure. Later Ollie opened a little gap and Thomas did everything to close up but Oliver took the win and Thomas secured a good second.
