Various IMSA and TransAm cars appeared on this WSC round, fastest of them being the works BMW’s. Stuck and Peterson led in front of their team-mates in the “production” category until they were washed out by the sudden downpour. The race developed into a boat race with the track flooded. After Stuck’s and Greenwood’s accidents the race was stopped and restarted when the rain stopped. Finally, the Hagestad/Haywood Carrera won the production class over the second works BMW of Posey/Redman.
