Eaves followed Kaye across the line in 12th. But his result came at the cost of team-mate Buxton who crashed out of the race avoiding Eaves when he lost control of his 307 at the high-speed Riches corner. Bennett also retired, with engine problems, while Howell's day went from bad to worse when his car had to be pushed off the starting grid with mechanical gremlins and he never started.
In Production, Boardman bounced back from his first race retirement to pass Hines off the grid and hold on for victory, their cars' performances proving virtually equal throughout the whole race. Each also now have five class victories to their names, although Boardman is a distant fourth in the championship behind new second-placed driver Blencowe and Bentwood. BTCC debutant Wheals, driving Varta's Peugeot 306, finished fourth in class. Team-mates Marsh and Edwards, the latter suffering power steering failure, Hughes and the rapid Fullalove, whose engine gave up the ghost, were all non-finishers.
