No one was ever going to beat Steve Saunders in the cold wet wintry conditions around Merthyr Tydfil in Wales. In between sleet and snow showers he put on a world-class performance to take a very clear win from Tarres. Other notable rides came from Northern Ireland’s Harold Crawford on the Yamaha, who finished eleventh behind Tony Scarlett in tenth on the JCM.
RESULTS: 1: Saunders 67; 2: Tarres 93; 3: Michaud 95; 4: Lejeune 107; 5: Bosis 110.
ENTRY: 80 Riders.
