As usual by now, the Sunday support race for the 4 hour ETCC race was for the small Group 1 cars. Konka had stayed in Zandvoort after the TTE race, and like before, he was too fast for the Dutch field and won the race ahead of Dooseman. The 1300 cc class looked like a win for Werkhoven, but the fan belt came off so it was Ruitenbeek who won again.
