As support act for the wet Grand Prix, an invitational touring car race was held. Practice removed two cars from the field; Van Beusekom’s Lancia was parked along the track at Tarzan corner, with no damage - until Jonker left the track at the same place, rolled and hit the Lancia.

Fastest in practice had been Slotemaker, with a considerably improved time compared to the Pinksterraces, while van der Sluis was the only one not to improve - might have something to do with his crash in the last race.

Koster had the best start, leading the field into Tarzan, van der Sluis second, Goedemans third (!) and Oskamp. But Slotemaker soon found the necessary speed and marched on to sixth (lap 2), fourth (lap 3) and finally first (lap 4). Lubin was the first to spin at Tarzan - and not the last: Akersloot spun there in lap 5, and van der Sluis, fighting with Slotemaker, even rolled the Porsche, raising questions about his practice time in the next race...

Now Oskamp followed Slotemaker, while Goedemans dropped back a little, while Swart was 6th in lap 10, in front of many much larger cars.
Lubin had pitted with a loose plug wire, Zwolsman (Anglia) had to come in for water and Dudok van Heel changed plugs. Zwolsman came in for a second time to repair his wiper, and Chiotakis lost his compressor power after lap 10. Another spin by Lubin, “Johnny Muller” spun even more often and now Oskamp was the fastest car on the track, and passed Slotemaker at Hunzerug. But the horsepower of the Mustang saved the day for Slotemaker.
