The line-up for the final was Tommi Edwardes on pole, with Richard Wakeling and Mark Griffin on the front row, Todd Crooks and Mark Day on row 2 and Mark O’Flanagan on row 3.
Richard Wakeling got a good start, moving in front of Tommi, with Mark Griffin and Todd Crooks again battling over 3rd place and Mark O’Flanagan getting past Mark Day. As they exited Gerard’s on lap 2, Mark and Todd were still neck and neck going down the back straight, but a mistake by Todd Crooks saw him spin going into the chicane, hitting the tyre wall. This left Mark Griffin free to concentrate on catching Tommi Edwardes and, on the final lap they too were battling down the back straight. This very close racing was great for the spectators and final standings were Richard Wakeling, Tommi Edwardes, Mark Griffin, Mark Day and Mark O’Flanagan.
