Burgess blasted into the lead from the sec­ond row, but Brian Caud­well was per­sis­tent in his at­tempts to get through. His re­peated brake-lock­ing proved his un­do­ing and he ended up in the Tarzan gravel on lap eight. Lang was re­warded for bid­ing his time with sec­ond in what would be his only fin­ish.
