Group 5
It seemed that Cañellas’ Seat was superior to the Escort of Peñacoba - at least for 11 laps. But then the latter went by and won by a narrow margin, with Sanz de Madrid third and Arnella fourth, both having a lonely race.

Group 1
The duel was between Marcos and Sasiambarrena, which was resolved in favour of the first when Sasiambarrena spun. Both had achieved few meters ahead of his rivals; among them, he managed to overtake Match couple to enter into second position. The traditional comeback of Comelles after a bad start moved him to fourth, behind Mach and Pareja.

Group 1 under 1300 cc
Escuder dominated the small Group 1 race, with second disputed between Sanz de Madrid and “Correcaminos”; the latter pushed it pushed the first, which retired. Unclear to me is if “Correcaminos” got a penalty or was disqualified.
Second place went to Toni Garcia ahead of Daniel Roses. A fine fight took place between the very young Jaime Hernandez (16) and Tostado, which ended in favor of the first when Tostado went off in the corner.
