Fifty one riders started the race for Categories ABCD over one hour and five laps on the lower circuit. After ten minutes of racing five riders including Bob Downs (Condor), Martin Meades and Barry Neal (Ciclos Uno), and Andrew Bates (ColourTech) escaped from the main bunch and soon gained a lead of fifteen seconds.

After a further 15 minutes of racing they were joined by Antony Wallis (Ciclos Uno). The six escapees were reduced to five after thirty minutes but they continued to increase their lead to eventually lap the field. After fifty minutes Antony Wallis escaped from the five and powered on to take the honours.

Of the remaining four Martin Meades crossed the line in second place with Bob Downs third, Andrew Bates fourth and Barry Neal fifth.
