18.KIRIAKOPOULOS KOSTAS 18:30.488

Fourth and last series of heats.
A timing problem imposes a rerun of the 3rd group,Niskopoulos junior,Kefalonitis,Nerantzis,Nisiotis,
which is disastrous for G.Neranztis as he hits trouble and retires,if it was not for the rerun he would have finished.Disaster for G.Androvich too:a loose rear body screw breaks the guide post and
he retires too.I drive a good race,G.Zourbanos is very nervous and finally i manage to gain 2 places.Then the post race scrutineering took place,first 3 cars plus 2 randomly chosen.D.Dimas
and F.Vagger got disqualified after having finished 1st and 13th respectively.The first had not noticed that the blue Alfa 33 is lighter the the previous versions,in fact it is written on the box but nobody had noticed it,therefore his car was found underweigh(body).The second had forgotten to remove the suspension from his car,it was allowed under previous years rules.

So here is the final classification after 120 laps
1.ANAGNOSTOPOULOS VASSILIS 18:30.287
2.PETRIS GEORGE 18:47.176
3.GAITANIS ALEXIS 19:06.765
4.ZOURBANOS GIORGOS 19:07.713
5.FOKIANOS GIANNIS 19:14.904
