Thompson held on to fourth two seconds clear of Muller who had a disappointing weekend and was expected to do better. Menu could not repeat his sprint achievement and could climb no higher than sixth, just beating for the second time in one day, Vincent Radermecker.
In Class B the Peugeot 306 of Alan Morrison was once again an early casualty with a gearbox problem which left James Kaye and Robert Collard to fight it out for class honours . Eventually Kaye emerged victorious after clinging to his lead all afternoon, at one stage he was punted to the outside of the track whilst being lapped which enabled Collard to keep in touch but a pass was not forthcoming. Mark Lemmer finished third in class after Marc Nordon retired.
The championship lead is once again in the hands of Alain Menu and nobody else. His team-mate Rydell suffered a nightmarish weekend and will not gain a point while Kristensen did his points haul no damage at all with a first and a third. Jason Plato
out-scored his team leader and is also now in the frame for the championship, whether Vauxhall allow him to win it, is another matter altogether.
