The weather had its part to play over the weekend, resulting in a smaller-than-anticipated list of entries for the Gauteng Regionals. Competition was fierce; however, with Nigel Hopkins winning the Unlimited Class in his MX2, Neville Ferreira winning the Advanced Category in his Yak 55 and Gary Glasson winning the Sportsmanís in his Pitts Falcon. Other entrants included  Johan Van Solms in a Pitts S2B, Glen Warden in an Extra 300, Barrie Eeles in his Sbach, Cliff Lotter in a Zlin 50 and Stan Oliver in his Extra 300.
