After one minute of silence for Nürburgring victim Godin de Beaufort the first race, up to 850 cc, took the start. Practice had resulted in a first row of Rothstein-Koster-Karlsson, followed by Grähser and Swart.
The works Saabs took the lead but Swart challenged after Koster had to pit with ignition troubles, soon followed by Dudok van Heel and Grähser with the same problems. The Saabs used team tactics, like last year, to prevent Swart from taking the lead. But a misunderstanding gave Swart the opportunity to pass Karlsson and to gain on Rothstein. Rothstein managed just to hold off Swart and to win by a narrow margin.

The front row of the second race (850-1300 cc) consisted of the Mini Coopers of Slotemaker (Downton), Banks (Tyrrell) and Broad (Broadspeed), followed by Handley and Lundenberger. The last one crashed in practice, and an all-nighter saw the car on the grid in showroom condition. Alas, mechanical gremlins meant a DNS.
Slotemaker took the lead but was quickly passed by Broad and Handley. But Rob fought back, taking he lead at Tarzan corner. Ed Swart became involved in the fight with the Tyrrell cars, only to run out of fuel.
Handley succeeded in passing Slotemaker once again, but Rob fought back for the second time and took the lead at the Hunzerug. Broad fell back to third and had to retire with a broken front suspension. The Handley/Slotemaker pair passed and repassed, but in the end Slotemaker was handicapped by an unwilling spark plug so Handley won.

After the Formula 3 intermezzo, the big classes (over 1300 cc), took the start. The front row consisted of Whitmore, Francorchamps hero Hahne and Ickx. Bailies mighty Galaxie could not start because of a broken valve in the American V8.
Whitmore took the lead, followed by Hahne and Ickx. Hahne’s oversteering BMW entertained the crowd, Ickx could not pass and Crosina came nearer and nearer. When Whitmore’s engine started playing up, Hahne took the lead, Ickx slowed down behind his team leader and Crosina could pass both Cortinas and became second overall.
