Lester, who despite being 3 secs a lap slower than Simonsen, but consistent never the less, started the first race. He pitted at the 23 minute mark, some 35 seconds behind the leaders.
Allan rejoined in 6th and soon made it to 5th. But such are the nuances of race cars that whilst they can be perfect one moment, they can be a handful the next.
Now the Ferrari was understeering badly and was a pain to get around corners. Allan quickly changed his style to minimise the problem and soon had taken Adam Wilcox for 3rd and 6 points towards the championship title.
Time for Race 2 and Allan started from pole making a super start.
