Car info:  

 

A long distance race again, so the drivers had to team up with partners, which gave this race a great entry: new faces were Rolf Stommelen, Toine Hezemans, Gijs van Lennep, Bob Wollek and Manfred Schurti, to name some.

Hezemans and Stommelen took the lead after 50 laps, after some competitors fell back with mechanical troubles or, like Keller, repairs after an “off” at the wet track. The Gelo team never looked back and won the race, with Fitzpatrick/van Lennep second in the same lap. Loos’ was particularly happy since he had been beaten by Kremer at Enna-Pergusa - the start of a bitter rivalry which would last for many years.

Rumours that some of the Carreras had a 3200 cc engine (pistons of that size were readably available) could not be proven, since nobody wanted to take the risk of a costly protest.
