This consolation race was made up of the 11 non-qualifiers from the Lombank North Central round.
It was Jeremy Gambs who made the best start from the middle of the front row whilst pole man Keiichi Tahara went off the road at the Esses writing off his GRD in the process. Richard Mallock moved into second place until overheating caused his U2 to drop away and eventually retire leaving Simon Sherman in his Royale RP11 and John MacDonald’s March 713M to squabble over the runner-up spot. In the last few laps Sherman closed in on Gamb’s Ensign but the Royale man failed to catch the winner by 1.4 seconds. Of the other runners front row occupant John Littler’s Ensign was out with carburetor problems and Jorge Pinhol’s GRD spun off at the Esses.
