The track was soaking wet for the 10-lap touring car race. Parkes took the lead, followed by Salvadori, McLaren and Hill - a Formula 1 field, no less. Blydenstein, in the well-used Borgward, overtook Foitek (Alfa Romeo) while the latter spun.
McLaren pressed Salvadori, but he too left the track and rejoined in fifth place. Whitmore had climbed up to seventh in the tiny Mini - a sight we would get used to. Behind him, Aley and Shepherd had a fight. Finally, Parkes took the win, with class wins for Blydenstein and Whitmore.
