Jack Brabham had badly damaged the Alan Brown Galaxie in practice and was unable to compete in the race. Sir Gawaine Baillie found transmission problems with his Galaxie on the warm-up lap and had to pull out of the race. At the start, Jim Clark surprised everyone by out-accelerating Sears Galaxie, with team-mate Peter Arundell in his slipstream as they tore into Madgwick. However, the Galaxie's power told and Jack Sears thundered past the Clark at Woodcote, with Bob Olthoff (Willment Lotus Cortina) fourth. Next up came Frank Gardner, also in a Willment Lotus Cortina. In the 1300 cc class, the Minis were having to play second fiddle to Mike Young and his Anglia. Clare, Slotemaker, Fitzpatrick - all had a go at the Superspeed Anglia, but the white car seemed to have more poke.
Meanwhile Sears bombed his way round, making it all look so easy. Yet Clark and Arundell were always there, both lifting wheels on the bends and never touching the brake pedal till the "100" marker. Frank Gardner waited till lap 4, then hared past team-mate Olthoff to try to do something about the Team Lotus cars. The Jaguars of McLaren and Sparrow were completely outclassed.
There were several excursions; Chris Craft (Lotus Cortina) bumped the chicane on his seventh lap and abandoned. Mick Clare (Mini Cooper S) did a spot of lawn-mowing at the same place, but regained the tarmac without hitting anything.
While Sears sailed on to win, followed by Clark, Arundell and Gardner in that order, Clare made a tremendous bid to catch Young. It was almost wheel to wheel as they came out of the chicane, but Young just managed to coax the Anglia over the line 0.2 seconds in front.
