The 30st Spa 24 hour race was a memorable event; it was redflagged after 15 hours following the demise of the King of Belgium. The race was a Porsche parade with a win for Christian Fittipaldi, Jean-Pierre Jarier and Uwe Alzen who were nearly unchallenged.
It was difficult in these times of big changes in the touring car world to agree on a set of rules which gave all the top runners a fair chance. When the Porsches were forced another 100 kg of ballast, they threatened to withdraw - and there were 40 of them on the grid. An alternative was sought and found; a restrictor on the refuelling systems should keep the Porsches longer in the pits; a stop would last 2,5 minutes now.
When Fittipaldi came in after 2 hours, his refuelling stop only lasted just over 1 minute... The only non-Porsche runners up front were the Honda NSX (which retired in the night after many problems) and three FIA class 2 Carinas, which were high on the grid (5-8-11) but were unable to match the speed; the Belga car of Verreydt/Close/Fermine finished a respectable 7th overall nonetheless.
