Bringing a level of professionalism that would make him untouchable, Sammy Miller totally dominated the event, leading from start to finish as he continued to lead the Spanish Armada with Bultaco changing the face of trials. The challenge for a win from a machine manufactured in Great Britain came from Dave Rowland, who worked wonders on his 175cc BSA Bantam. Try as he might though, the Derbyshire based rider could not close the 16 mark winning margin on Miller. In an embarrassing situation for the management of Greeves Dennis Jones came home in third position but was not a member of the winning manufacturers’ team. The best newcomer award went to Martin Lampkin on the BSA followed by Paul Dunkley on the new Cheetah.
