Group 5 under 1000 cc
Høyer and Borch-Christensen were back after a week, and with Høyer winning heat one and Borch-Christensen heat two, but Høyer again won heat three and the overall victory was his.

Group 5 over 1300 cc
Despite the presence of Hans “Baron” von Richthofen with his Lotus, Engstrøm and Henriksen walked away with the race. The idea of allowing a GT class was quickly put aside with only the Baron and Hansen (Sonett) present here.

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.
