After BMW had nearly given up touring car racing for 1985, detail work on the 635 and Pirelli tires gave them new hope. Eggenberger had switched to the Turbo Volvo and would be competitive as well.
But Volvo and BMW tore each other to pieces and the third (Rover) won the race. After 48 laps, the three Rovers took the lead and finished 1-2-3. Ravaglia broke his engine only one lap after he had taken over from Berger (in second place) while teammate Pirro hit the kerbs too hard and had to give up. Apart from pole position, the Volvos had little to smile about, Granberg leading until the 27th lap but a blown head gasket meant the end. The Eggenberger cars retired too, with a broken turbo (Brancatelli) and a blown head gasket (Dieudonné).
