Group 2 under 850 cc
Again four Abarths in the first four finishers, Søgaard on top once again. Despite leaving the track in a spectacular way, rolling 6 or 7 times, Weinreich still managed fourth overall...

Group 5 under 1000 cc
A new lap record and overall victory for Høyer - but it was a close shave, since Borch-Christensen won heat 2 and 3 and only Høyer's big margin from heat 1 saved the day. During the race, Svoger followed Nielsen closely only to hit a straw bale and rolled the Mini over and over again. When it stopped, so did Hollnagel; being a doctor, he checked Svoger’s health but when he appeared to be okay Hollnagel set off again, some way behind of course, to finish eight overall.

Group 5 over 1300 cc
Another Swede, Elgén, was present here with a Porsche; he could challenge Engstrøm from time to time, but the Engstrøm’s victory never was in danger. Third was Tobiasson, and the second best Dane was only fourth in the person of Henriksen.

Remarks: Since many results are compiled backwards from the championship tables, it is possible that I have missed foreign drivers, which may have actually won a race outright.
