Drivers and fans alike travelled from all over the country to attend the meeting, with 24 cars entering the main race.

Current World Champion Lee Fairhurst took the chequered flag and pole position at the World Championship later in the season at Kings Lynn.

Second over the line was Tom Harris who had led the race for every lap but was beaten by an excellent move from Fairhurst on the final corner which saw Harris retire from the rest of the meeting with damage, whilst third place went to Dan Johnson.
