At the start of April (April 1-2) at the Rallye Terre des Causses Jordan Berfa had also been able to match the times of crews driving WRC-spec machinery. Making his first start at the wheel of a New Generation i20 R5 run by Turbo APB Competition in the opening round of the French gravel championship he and Damien Augustin finished fifth overall, the second best of the R5 runners. Jordan was back at the wheel of the car, this time on tarmac, at the Rallye National Val d’Agout, part of the France Cup competition. Though he dominated the event, it was not a totally smooth weekend for the team. Leading by 25 seconds going into the final stage on Saturday a puncture lost him more than 40 seconds. However, on Sunday he was by far the fastest driver, bouncing back to the lead and going on to win by nearly two minutes.
