In the weekend of 22-23 October 2016 the last BL-Cup race was held at the indoor offroad circuit in Grou. A good result could get a 2nd place overall for Erik Wadners so this race was important. Also Oscar could move some places if his result was good. The qualification started en as there was plenty of time 5 qualifications were driven with the best 2 counted. This was good for Oscar as he messed up the first 2 qualifications. Erik did allright but a 5th place after qualifications were finished was not what he aimed for. Oscar could not improve and 17th place was his place after qualifications.
Oscar and Erik were both placed in the A semi final (because of the low amount of drivers on this last race there was no need for 1/4 finals). Erik drove a solid race, starting from 3rd he gained 1 position because the leader (Bart Mullink) did not charge his LiPo well enough. Oscar slowly improved position after position and finished 4th, placing himself in the mains as well.
In the main Erik had a long fight for 3rd place and managed to get that place, a collision on the straight promoted him to 2nd place as Anne had to abort his race. Oscar ended up in a big pile of cars in the first lap and starting from the back he managed 9th place.
Because of his 2nd place Erik also ended 2nd in the overall bl-cup standings.
