Group 2 under 1600 cc
Again, Robert Kvist was entered here, but this time it was his machine which failed - Buch-Larsen scoring another victory.

Group 2 under 1000 cc
Both Borch-Christensen and Larsen withdrew here, but Eklund was back - and was beaten this time by Høyer.

Group 1
Both Larsen and Borch-Christensen appeared at this next round, and both withdrew their Group 2 under 1000 cc entry to concentrate on this Group 1 race. Larsen won two out of three heats and won overall, followed by Borch-Christensen. Høyer came third, protested against Borch-Christensen but this was rejected. Hasfeldt copied Kristensen’s accident earlier in the season: the Mini was just as flat and fortunately Hasfeldt was just as unharmed!

Group 5
Tom Belsø had his work cut out - he should find a few extra horsepower if he wanted to keep his championship dreams alive. But he did not succeed; in an attempt to stay with Engstrøm he spun and had to start all over again. He set a new lap record, but more than third behind Engstrøm and Rasmussen was all he could achieve. In the second heat he seemed to go better, but then his rear axle broke. It was over. Engstrøm won and claimed the championship, with Rasmussen finishing second overall followed by the unbelievable Volvo of Mörbäck.

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.
