Notes

  • Fastest lap: John Watson 1'17.630
  • In this race, Jansen Van Vuuren, a 19 year old Dutch student and safety marshall died when crossing the track to extinguish a fire on Renzo Zorzi's retired Shadow, but was struck by Tom Pryce's car at high speed. The impact killed both Pryce and Van Vuuren instantly, Van Vuuren from the impact of the collision, Pryce from sustaining a fatal head injury from the marshall's fire extinguisher. The extreme forces involved in the collision resulted in Van Vuuren leaving no identifiable remains, and he was only recognized by exclusion after the race director gathered all of his colleagues. Also, due to the extreme forces, Pryce's helmet was fully ripped off in result of the fire extinguisher.
