TinTops With leading contender Chris Bassett on holiday, it remained to see who could challenge Chris Whiteman. From the outset Whiteman was on a mission, as he easily posted the fastest qualifying time of 54.6 seconds, which was 1.3 seconds quicker than anyone else. Robert Hosier was second, with Rod Birley third and Daniel Fisher fourth. Daniel Adams and Graham Richardson lined up on row three, followed by Searles, Everson, Angell and Day completing the top ten.

TinTops From the rolling start Whiteman held the lead as Birley nipped past Hosier. However, the white Integra soon developed the same misfire which has plagued it all season and Birley dropped out. Whiteman eased his pace as a sticky gearbox was causing an issue, but he easily had enough in hand over Fisher who was now second. Hosier had Adams challenging for third place and on lap 15 the Proton squeezed by. Fifth spot was a fairly lonely Richardson who outpaced Searles in the MG. Angell had the upper hand in a close battle with the T3 protagonists, as Farndon just took the honours from Everson and Day. In fact Trevor Collar got involved as well in his T2 Honda Civic and pipped Day for tenth overall. Cliff Pellin took class TP honours as he held off Matt Ellis and newcomer Ryan Brimstead. Chris Bicknell (Saxo) fended off another debutant, namely Danny Brooker in a smart BMW Mini. Gideon September, Kelly Dann and Tris Barden completed the finishers.

TinTops Race two followed a similar pattern, although Collar non-started. Birley joined in at the back, but the engine problems were not resolved although he did limp home for a few points this time. Whiteman dominated again, winning by over 15 seconds, as Fisher took the runner up spot again. Adams and Hosier battled for third, but the Proton driver may have buzzed his engine, as he pulled off at Graham Hill bend. This meant that Richardson moved up to fourth, with Searles fifth and Angell now sixth. The T3 battle intensified and unfortunately there was some contact going into Clearways. A very disgruntled Farndon lost out as he retired the VW Golf. Day held on to take class honours from Everson, as Pellin won TP again in ninth. Ellis came home tenth, as Brooker moved up to 11th. Brimstead and Bicknell squabbled over the next position but finished in this order, followed by September, Barden, Dann (driver of the day) and Birley. Best prepared car went to a delighted Brooker.
