Zaugg preserved his advantage however andmanaged to pull away. After six laps, he had stabilized the gap at just over three seconds ahead ofAmici with another two seconds in hand over third placed Cédric Leimer. 10 seconds behind raceleader was Bernard Delhez, holding fourth place, with Roberto Tanca heading up the amateur classa further five seconds down the road in fifth place.
