Pictures

Half an hour over time, the flag dropped and Ford could start to pick up the title for Glemser. BMW did not send a car, and since Hezemans would have to win his division (against the faster Escort BDA) while Glemser had to finish 5th or lower the chances for the Dutchman were zero.
Two Capris took the lead, followed by the Escort, who took over the lead after a while. A third Capri (Piot) was fourth, and then came Facetti, Hezemans’ co-driver. He was blocked by Piot, while the Escort disappeared into the distance.
Suddenly, Facetti had enough of it and took the inside at the hairpin, but Piot closed the door, forceful but maybe just legal. They made contact, the Ford went sideways and Facetti tried to pass - but Piot pushed the Alfa off the track. Facetti fought back, tried to pass once again - and was hit by the Ford. Facetti tried the other side - bang, and two flat tires on the Autodelta car. Facetti limped back to the pits, the resulting tire change cost the duo a lap.
Piot was black flagged, finally. The other Capris were ordered back to the pits; with 11 Alfas on the road they feared an “accident”.
Finally they went out again, to form a formation finish with the winning Escort RS and the GT of Matthews. Fitzpatrick won the race, Glemser his division and the championship. Picchi won the 1300 class, securing the manufacturers’ title.
