A dry Donington this time, and the newly staggered grid (after the carnage at Snetterton) saw Winkelhock on pole. The first five were within one-tenth of a second!
When the light went out Winkelhock took the lead ahead of Allam, Soper, Cleland and Watts and the latter soon moved up one spot. The leading quartet was spread out more than usual, but the group behind them was very close indeed. Bailey and Hoy were trying to fight down Cleland: positions 5-7 changed more than once a lap.
Soper and Winkelhock had a clear lead in the championship now.
