The driver from Monaco was driving on the English track, one he does not like, for the first time but set a series of quick laps, eventually stopping the clock at 1:37.632. Behind him, just .220 down, came Venezuelan Gaetano Ardagna.
In third was Nicolò Piancastelli in 1:37.997. Dutchman Bakker took a solid fourth in front of Owen Mildenhall. Mildenhall, the English journalist, who was on board the No.18 Maserati sporting Radio Monte Carlo colours, was later relegated to the last row by race officials for not respecting the regulations on tyre use. Sixth went to overall leader David Baldi in 1:38.625, as he edged out Maddalena, Kroes and, second in the Team standings, Matteo Grassi from Swiss Team.
