The Tigers were suffering with a 'long tail' as barely two tenths separated Bob Paulson who was fourth in the averages on 4.44 and John Dews who was seventh on 4.20. Bob Paulson's 7 points at Coventry were enough to restore his full team places and he responded with another good performance. John Dews paid 10 was his highest team score so far this season. Chris Pusey deputised for Bengt Larsson who was back in Sweden riding in the Nordic Final, and Jim Airey was congratulated on setting a new track record last week shaving 1/5 second off Bengt's two year old time.

The visiting 'Stars' had a strong looking team captained by Terry Betts and featuring Malcolm Simmons and two ex-Tigers in David Crane and Clive Featherby.
