The new track consisted of fast left-handers and sharp hairpins and was attractive to the viewers as well to the drivers. Andrea de Adamich kept the lead until the last lap, only to hit a kerbstone - he had to retire. But others had problems too: a Trabant rolled and lost its roof, the rest of the bodywork collapsed - the car was a write-off.
There were too few competitors for points to be awarded.
