Own Tangavelou finished fourth, ahead of a close battle between Daniel Ligier and top Junior classification driver Dario Cabanelas. The next best Junior drivers were Alessandro Guisti and Enzo Geraci in ninth and 10th overall.

The only incident of the race occurred on lap four, when Enzo Richer spun twice and dropped to the back of the order. He finished finished over three quarters of a minute behind Masson.
