Report from Short Circuit Magazine

The Grand Prix Midgets were racing for the prestigious Graham Hill Memorial Trophy. Bette Hill was on hand to do the draw and present the prizes. The first two rows of the grid looked very strong with John Lowe on pole and Brian Harding alongside, and the second row consisted of John Graham with World and British Champion Mick Bonner alongside. Other notable runners: European Champion Jan van Rengs was drawn 22 and Basil Craske was drawn 20. Brian Harding led the pack away with Mick Bonner in close pursuit. Early casualty was Basil Craske who broke his suspension in an accident with Gary Pollard. By lap 8 Mick Bonner had hit the front and started to pull away with Brian Harding and John Graham behind. No sooner had he hit the front than Mick started to slow putting Brian Harding back into the lead. Behind Brian was a nose-to-tail train consisting of Mick Bonner, Jan van Rengs, John Graham and Klaus Kilianski. This was however broken up when back-marker Gary Pollard did another demolition job eliminating van Rengs. This left Brian Harding in a comfortable lead to take the flag some 10 lengths ahead of Mick Bonner followed by John Graham, Henk Hanssen, Kilianski and Brian Forrest.

The two supporting races provided victories for Malcolm Goodman from Alf Boarer and John Graham and Boarer from Malcolm Goodman and Jan van Rengs.
