The feud between AWD and FWD resumed when the FlatOut Race Series (FORS) returned to the Batangas Racing Circuit last May 20 for Round 3 of the 2017 season.

JC Baguisa’s #696 Blanche Racing Honda Civic EG drew first blood in Brackets R and A, setting a best time of the day of 1:49.805. However, he was only 2nd best in the GT Radial Grid A race, losing out to the #151 Mitsubishi Evolution 7 of Don Don Portugal who made up for his DNF last time around.
