Klaus Klaffenbock took a clear victory in the Superside, aka Sidecar, race at Monza as his closest rivals dropped out of the race, one of them literally – Jorg Steinhausen’s passenger Andy Hetherington fell out of the sidecar as the pair pursued the title leaders. Reigning Champion Steve Webster suffered another engine failure handing a huge lead to Klaffenbock both on the track and in the title.

The race was restarted because of a huge smash on the first lap which left passenger Jane Fleury with multiple injuries and caused the race to be red-flagged.

Steve Abbott took advantage of both Steinhausen and Webster’s misfortune to take second in the race and the title.
