Allan Grice had the best answer to Adalaide’s challenges; with a new car and a new sponsor he qualified a lowly sixth, but he stormed into the lead only to spin and having to start all over again. But he drove like a man possessed, passed all including the unlucky Brock who seemed to settle for third until his engine expired. The only one capable of keeping up with Grice’s Commodore was Fury (they shared fastest lap) but tire troubles meant he had to be content with second. Crosby finished third, right behind Fury while Richards had to retire the normally reliable BMW with transmission problems.
