A smart start from pole by Rod Begbie in the green TVR Grantura MkIII saw him followed into Madgwick by William Penrose in a maroon Grantura and Jeremy Cooke in the Lotus Elan S2 at the start of this all-British race. An early mover through the field was Chris Ryan in his MGB ‘Le Mans’, gaining fourth place by the end of the first lap before an error by Cooke promoted him to third until he was bumped down the order by the flying Lotus Elite of Robin Ellis.
