This was the first race in which a competitive touring car was entered, apart from the IMSA races early in the season - which did not have any sportscars present.
It was the Faltz BMW of Müller/Peltier against the horde of Carrera’s, while the tired Capri would not play any role at all.
Loos and Tebernum entered two cars each, and especially the Loos car had star drivers.
Peltier drove a fine race on home ground in challenging conditions, and was way ahead of the Carrera’s at the finish - a good third overall.
