Group 5
A thin field, but the fight between Cañellas and Peñacoba was worthwhile. Sanz de Madrid overcooked things at the start, leaving third for Martin Cantero who was soon passed by Casagne. Arnella followed but appeared to have engine problems. The order remained the same, and a protest from Sanz de Madrid against the engine of Peñacoba was rejected.

Group 1
Alfonso Marcos led from flag to finish, but behind him there was a tremendous battle for second place; Pereja managed to surprise Secades, with a little further behind Sasiambarrena and Comelles. This group entertained the audience and finished in the order Marcos, Pareja, Comelles, Secades and Sasiambarrena.

Group 1 under 1300 cc
Escuder’s Fiesta was superior to the Citroën of Fermín Sánchez, while Sanz de Madrid and Jonama fought for third place until the last moment. In the end, they submitted a protest against the car of the winner (apparently on the suspension) and when the officials wanted to verify the car it was already outside the parc fermé.
