The Fiat 131 of Matthew Robin­son re­tired from the Track­rod His­toric Cup de­spite the best ef­forts of car builder Kevin Theaker. When the crew re­ported a prop­shaft vi­bra­tion in the Lang­dale stage, Theaker was on his way to his Mal­ton work­shop to fetch a spare to fit at sec­ond ser­vice when the shaft failed leav­ing first ser­vice.

Stig Blomqvist re­turned to they­ork­shire forests at the week­end to drive a Chris Birk­beck-en­tered Opel As­cona on the Track­rod His­toric Cup. Un­for­tu­nately, the 1984 World Rally cham­pion from Swe­den was forced out with axle prob­lems.
