Notes

  • Fastest Lap: John Watson 1:40.960
  • This was Shadow's only victory
  • Jones's win was so unexpected the organisers didn't even have a copy of the Australian national anthem. So 'Happy Birthday' was played through the PA system instead.
  • Hans Heyer was disqualified from his race due to his illegal race start at the preceding GP; but he wasn't even planning on entering this GP.
