The pole-sitter guided John Bowers’ Lotus 25 into the lead at the start, with Nick Fennell slotting his similar car into second, Joe Colasacco running third aboard Lawrence Auriana’s Ferrari 1512. The American inherited second after Fennell spun off at the first part of Madgwick shortly thereafter, the gap between the lead duo standing at 3.3-second at quarter-distance. Young charger Timothy De Silva assumed third place aboard his BRM-engined Lotus 24.

Middlehurst and Colasacco disappeared up the road, the Italian machine closing on the Lotus only to lose out among traffic at half-distance. Sadly, Colasacco smacked the barriers exiting the chicane on the penultimate lap but emerged unscathed. Middlehurst led home De Silva and Mark Shaw (Lotus 21), another standout being Octogenarian legend Richard Attwood who guided his BRM P261 from twelfth to sixth place.
