Frank drove a faultless race to lead from the start to win by almost a lap, his only problem being dealing with lapping slower cars. Samson had a more difficult weekend with the Ginetta. He did well to qualify third and made a good start to move to second place on the opening lap. He ran in a comfortable second for the first five laps before going off at Turn 9 hitting the barrier and suffering extensive front end damage. Despite the damage he managed to continue the race and he drove really well to claw his way back to 4th place at the end, rapidly closing on third place.
