32 cars lined up for the final with Neal Smith on Pole and Mike Riordan alongside, row 2 had Steve Thompson & Neil Stimson, Row 3 Malcolm Blackman & Davy McCall, Row 4 Deane Wood &Brereton

As Smith led them away  there was a big shunt on the back straight as first McCall went spinning round with many of the following pack piling in, worst off were McCall and Chris Haird, his immaculate Corrado suffering heavy front and rear damage. At the restart 6 cars were missing (942, 950, 996, 74, 115, 961) but another incident involving 305 brought out the reds again and the third complete restart.

Grid – (third attempt) 

657 170  911 302  19   31  119  976  160  967  200  894  141  177

 A hectic couple of laps saw Blackman out in front followed by Stimson and Smith. Smith found a way past Stimson who steadily fell back down the order and chased after Blackman. Eventually catching him and following right on his tail with around 48 laps done Blackman overcooked it coming out of turn 2 and Smith Seized the advantage, Blackman desperately trying to get back in front of Smith but instead spinning out into retirement and bringing out the reds again. With 25 left to run Smith led away from Thompson, Spinks, Scott and Wood, Thompson chased hard as Wood demoted both the 14 & 119 cars. Smith just managed to hold off Thompson at the flag to take the win.

Result:- 657 Neal Smith 170, 302, 14, 142, 994, 976, 19. 119, 402, 844, 151, 141, nof
