Engstrøm, reigning champion, had switched to a BMW 2002, while Henriksen sold his BMW to Winther and piloted an Opel Kadett from now on. Buch-Larsen was the only Ford challenger left in his Escort TC.
Engstrøm had an easy victory over fellow BMW driver Winther, while Buch-Larsen in third was a long way behind.

under 1300 cc
Høyer made no secret of his desire to win this championship - he won the class with over 30 seconds over Kristensen, while Borch-Christensen in the small Abarth 1000 finished third.

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.
