Mike Salmon forged in front with McNally's blue Mustang, harried by Muir (Galaxie), Clark (Lotus Cortina) and Sir Gawaine Baillie (Falcon) in that order. Peter Procter overturned his Anglia at St Mary's, the car caught fire and Peter was taken to hospital with bad burns. Later he was transferred to East Grinstead by aeroplane. He had been in company with Chris Craft's bigger engined Anglia, who was chasing John Rhodes's works Mini Cooper S.

Bill Bradley's Triumph 2000 took to the grass at Madgwick but rejoined the race. Roy Pierpoint was not so lucky, for he tore into the countryside at St Mary's, bending the front end of his Falcon more than somewhat.

On lap 6 Muir pushed the big Galaxie ahead of Salmon, and Jack Brabham had brought the brick-red Alan Brown Mustang up into third place. Chris Craft was disputing the issue with Rhodes, and John Fitzpatrick's "small" Anglia was easily leading the fancied Fraser imp of Ray Calcutt. Nick Brittan was going splendidly with an 850 cc motor in his Fraser Imp, keeping in front of Mylius's Fiat Abarth.
Two laps from the end and Brabham slipped in front of Salmon to take second spot behind Muir. Brabham was finding his car difficult to handle, with one brand-new unscrubbed tyre on the front. In point of fact, he was all but beaten into third place by Jim Clark in the Lotus Cortina, only 0.8 seconds separating them at the end. Muir had driven a splendidly calculated race, proving that the 7-litre Galaxie in the proper hands is a force with which to reckon in saloon-car dicing. Chris Craft and Fitzpatrick humbled Mini-Cooper and Imp respectively in the smaller classes. All class records were smashed, and Muir's 1.32,2 (93.71 mph) was the fastest ever in a saloon car at Goodwood.
