The track remained dry as the race started. Specialty Engineering's own Andy Pearson led the entire way to win the P1 race. The fall weather did however reek havok with four of the other Specialty Engineering built cars, as leaves from the trees filled the radiators. Pit stops were required to clean the leaves and ultimately forced Tim Brown out of the race.
