The new car weights seemed to have worked; the Sierras were competitive, with a pole for Reuter. But Grohs could challenge during the race, until his electronics played up. He had to let Schneider by, but could salvage third at least.
The Ford 1-2 could have been even better; Mertes had a puncture, while Winkelhock hampered with his tires until the battery quit. While Volvo got a little more speed thanks to the weight reduction, the Mercedes drivers were outclassed.
