The third race took place on Sunday, May 6 at Zwevegem MRCZ at their outdoor track. The practice on Saturday was only driven under the rain. This promised for Sunday, but on Sunday it remained dry all day. We had 37 drivers at the start.

In the Efra class in qualifying we saw a duel between Thomas Stockman, the leader in the standings, and Olivier Bultynck, the champion of 2011. It was Olivier who eventually took TQ in front of Thomas and Nick Joosens who took third place. Manuel Henriet placed himself as fourth.

The first final was super exciting. Olivier left from pole and held Thomas behind. Nick and Manuel battled for third place. Manuel managed to pass Nick and immediately began to put pressure on Thomas. This enabled Ollie to made a small gap. Thomas went under the enormous pressure and Manuel took the second place. Meanwhile, the gap to Olivier was too big and Olivier crossed the finish line as the winner. Manuel finished second followed shortly by Thomas.

In the second final Olivier started like a rocket. Ollie drove away and made fast lap after fast lap. Meanwhile, Thomas, Nick and Manuel were engaged in a battle. Manuel’s car broke and Nick made a mistake. Thomas drove to second place without problems. Meanwhile, Nick Logie came back from behind and drove himself to a strong third place. Olivier won his second final and also this race.

The third final would be a fight for positions two and three overall. We had four contenders: Thomas Stockman, Nick Joosens, Manuel Henriet and Nick Logie. Olivier came also at the start. After the start Thomas was immediately attacked by Nick Joosens but could hold his position. Manuel did everything to pass Nick Joosens but Nick drove a strong third final. Thomas made a mistake while he past a slower driver and landed on its roof. Nick drove to second place with Manuel at his tail. Meanwhile Nick Logie came back after a poor start to fourth position. Olivier saw the battle behind him and left Nick and Manuel pass and battling for victory in this final. Nick Joosens had a lot of trouble with Manuel Henriet but kept his coolness and took the victory. Manuel came in second and Olivier as third.

Overall result: Olivier Bultynck winner (Yokomo), Manuel Henriet (Serpent) second and Nick Joosens (Yokomo) third.
