Group 2 under 1000 cc
An entry of 37 cars, including Ragnar Eklund from Sweden with his Mini. The heats were exciting, with Høyer just winning both heats only 0,1 sec over Eklund. Borch-Christensen had a Swedish counterpart as well in Olof Wijk, who was too fast for the Danish driver.

Group 1
Kristensen returned to the frame with his Mini more looking like a real car again, and his talent had not been left behind in hospital as well. He won the first heat in front of Borch-Christensen and Høyer, while Lundberg, who had exchanged his Mini for a Fiat coupé came fourth. But in the second heat he retired, Borch-Christensen winning over Høyer and Lundberg. Høyer won the last heat, but it was not enough so Borch-Christensen won the race overall.

Group 5
After the mayhem of the last race, it was made clear that a black flag would immediately issued if anything like that would happen again. Belsø and Engstrøm made up and were friends again, but for how long?
Since this race would be the start of a co-operation between the Scandinavian Raceway and Jyllandsringen, top Swedish entries were expected; but only Brasta in a Group 2 Porsche turned up. Pierpoint returned, now with an Escort TC.
Fastest in practice had been Belsø, with Engstrøm 0,5 seconds behind with Brasta third another 0,5 seconds behind. Then followed Henriksen, Buch-Larsen and Rasmussen, Buch-Larsen only racing here since there was again no Group 2 1600 cc race. Second fastest Swede was Wunderlich in an Opel Rekord.
Belsø and Engstrøm stuck to their words and had a fair duel, taking over from Brasta who had formidable starts here. Engstrøm won two heats, Belsø the last one, but that was not enough so Engstrøm won overall with Belsø second.

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.
