THE RACE – Edoardo Liberati takes a perfect start and keeps the advantage over Salom, De Fulgencio, Cerqueda, Leutwiler, Pisani, Font and Toni. The initial pas saw Cerqueda and Pisani in great form: both gain positions against the McLarens to run in second and third, respectively, after five laps, with Liberati 7 seconds clear in the lead.
 In the meantime, Toni and Fontes have had a contact at the Ascafi chicane and Davide Fumanelli retires with the Montecarlo Tecno Alfa ‘Nanni Galli’, after having taken the start as a tribute to Galli, the great former Alfa sportscar and Tecno F.1 driver passed away yesterday evening at 78. 
The window for driver change opens in lap 12, as Font spins at the Ascari dropping some places. After all changes, Koller leads with 11 seconds on Bozzoni, 17 on DíazVarela and 18 on Leutwiler, followed by Curti and Pujeu. Shortly after, Díaz-Varela stops in the pits. 
 

 
 
 
 
It seems that the end of the race is going to be quiet, with Koller cruising to victory and the title, but it is written somewhere that drama has to strike. Koller suffers a slow puncture at the front in the penultimate lap, and slows, allowing a number of cars to pass him, but when Leutwiler gets close to the Lambo, there is a hard contact at Curva Grande, with both cars puncturing a tire and the Lambo coughing fire at the rear. Koller continues like this up to pits, in his flaming car, to secure the title while Lino Curti wins the race ahead of Vivacqua and Mauro.
