Two touring car races for the season opener at Zandvoort: the new “Super Toerwagen” class, with rules not unlike used in Belgium and Britain, and Group 5, after only one year of the more restricted group 2/4 rules.

Super Toerwagens
Fred Frankenhout was left at the starting grid by the agile Ford RS 2000’s of Schinkel and Houthuyzen, but soon the yellow Commodore took over and led the field after the first lap home. Schinkel was a distant second, but third place was a nice duel between Koks and Houthuyzen - which Koks won. The smallest class was won by Dooseman (Golf) after an equally entertaining fight with Prins (Audi).
The Camaro’s were not at the level of the Opel just yet, and some of them were not even present here.

Group 5
After a battle for the lead between Slotemaker and Suykerbuyk, van Oorschot in his ex-Loos Porsche 934 passed them and took the race home with ease. Kok’s Escort 1300 BDA was as fast as expected and won its class.
