Winners of race 6 were Mike Holt and Carl Smit USA, 2nd Taylor Moore and Rob Woelfel USA, 3rd Andy Smith and Roger Gilbert. Ian Pinnel and David Shelton were seventh.

And final race of the day, race 7 was finally a win for Mike Martin and Adam Lowry, with Mike Holt and Carl Smit second and looking like the new champions, and in third were Bertallot and Reifferscheidt.

Overall after seven races Holt and Smit of the USA lead by 14 points from Smith and Gilbert of Britain, with in third place Conrads and Haines of the USA.
