Soren Sjosten had broken his leg at Newport in a second half crash the week before and Bengt Larsson had been recalled for domestic duty so both teams utilized rider replacement. An engine failure for Cyril Maidment in heat 5 saw the Tigers taking the lead which Cyril and Sandor Levai eventually clawed back in heat 10. John Dews and Billy Bales raced to an electrifying win in heat 11, and then Arnie Haley and John Hart's win in heat 12 was the match winner. Tigers riders only took the chequered flag in 5 races but showed they were the better team on the night.
