Both Pisani and Farrugia were followed by Karl Micallef on a Ford Fiesta and the Fiat Punto of Noel Zammit who closed the day in third and fourth place respectively.

The fifth and sixth places were won by Terence Azzopardi on an Opel Corsa and Peugeot 106 of Jean Paul Grech. This was a very close and fast race between all the six cars from start to finish.

In the Modified Class B Ryan Sciclnua on a Ford Fiesta won this class while Melo Zammit followed on his Opel Corsa. Scicluna and Zammit were followed by Jonathan Camilleri on his Opel Corsa and the Vauxhall Nova of Keith Borg.
