Kees Kroesemeijer, starting a career after the Golf GTI cup which would him bring into Group C in the end, again drove the Group 1B Golf GTI of Nico Versteegh, and won the race after a fight with Prins (Audi) had been settled. Derr won the 1300 cc class and now Derr, van Leeuwen and Oeberius Kapteyn all had 82 points in the championship - with only one race to go.

The tension in the big class, despite all the good intentions, still was high. Though Loek Vermeulen retired early, it wouldn’t be an incident-free race at all. Cleutjens took an early lead and seemed to be able to stay out of trouble this time; but then he threw away his big lead in a spin at Tarzan corner. Frankenhout, Antonides (who later retired at Gerlach corner), Hemmes and Moritz slipped through and Cleutjens had to do it all over again. First victim was Moritz, without problem; then he met Henny Hemmes, and after some bangs the Camaro ended in the gravel trap at the Marlboro Chicane, with Cleutjens losing another handful of places. The order was now Frankenhout, Moritz, de Jager, Cleutjens, Houthuyzen and Fresco. The latter passed Capri driver Houthuyzen, and now was sandwiched between the Fords. That couldn’t go right, and it didn’t; they finished in the order mentioned earlier, but Fresco’s helmet was thrown at the Capri team after the finish...
