Tar­mac reg­u­lar John Saun­ders, hav­ing owned that same car for three years, was de­lighted to suc­ceed where Toivo­nen did not by fin­ish­ing with­out in­ci­dent in 17th along­side co-driver Tony Hart. As the orig­i­nal car is in­el­i­gi­ble to com­pete, they en­tered a mod­i­fied 2.5-litre 6R4 wear­ing the same liv­ery.
