Tim Wilkinson should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Added some info - lap times, positions and reasons for retirement. Confirmed that Wallis was a Drury entry, and Dowson ran Mahony's car. Hall's given time was that of Alan Minshaw. Rouse was a classified finisher.

Bristow went off at the first corner on cold tyres, Mike O'Brien flat-spotted his tyres avoiding him. 2 laps later a tyre burst, putting him out.
Rouse was leading, but a turbo hose worked loose and he had to pit on two occasions to have it re-attached.

Shead's engine blew in practice. Kaye's had done the same on the dyno, so he was in his Prodsaloon car while the grpA engine was rebuilt.

10 / #70 / Phil Dowsett / TOM'S GB / D / Toyota Corolla GT / 1st in class (23 laps)
11 / #63 / Tony Crudgington / Crudgington / D / Toyota Corolla GT / 2nd in class (23 laps)

Eaton and Belcher had a coming together. Belcher spun, and Eaton retired as a result of the contact.
