Another 12 car entry for this Forward Trust round, Brian Henton was missing as the uncompetitive Brazilian Jan Balder took over his car. In a last minute deal Danny Sullivan took over the works Modus that hadn’t run since Tony Brise drove it at Monaco and the Nurburgring.
Mike Tyrrell made a great start hotly pursued by Tony Rouff but at Campbell Rouff spun off taking both Dick Parsons in the Smiths Crisps Ensign and pole sitter Nick von Pruessen with him. All three cars were out, Parsons with a damaged rear corner and Rouff with a damaged nose and flat tyres. Tyrrell was now ahead of Danny Sullivan who was really trying hard and on lap 4 the Modus took the lead and despite pick-up problems in the closing stages due to a water leak in the engine causing overheating the American hung on to win. Tyrrell came under heavy pressure in the closing stages from Conny Andersson but the Swede was 0.4 seconds adrift at the flag. Marcos Moraes held onto fourth after being displaced by Andersson, José Espirito Santo took fifth ahead of a badly misfiring Jose Chateaubriand.
