 The Dukes dominated the opening heats taking the chequered flag in the first five races and opening an eight point lead. The Sheffield team manager made a tactical substitution in heat 6 and the 5-1 revitalized the visitors and they were first past the flag in five of the remaining seven heats. Bengt and Charlie's second 5-1 in heat 12 levelled the scores and although Brian Maxted failed to open his account in the deciding heat Bob Paulson beat the two Erics to force a draw.
