Jacky Ickx of Belgium and West Germany's Jochen Mass gained valuable points in the world endurance championship when they won the six-hour Budweiser GT race in Mosport, Canada, on August 5. The one thousand Kilometre (660 mile) race was the only North American stop on the world endurance circuit, and the first such race in Canada since 1981. The Ickx-Mass entry took the race with an average speed of 166 kilometres per hour (103 mph). Their victory, in a Porsche 956, continues the current dominance of the Porsche factory team in world endurance racing. One of the major challenges to the winning team came from Stefan Bellof of West Germany and teammate Derek Bell of Britain, also in a Porsche, who came fourth after a major delay involving a pit fire. The victory puts Jochen Mass at the top of the drivers' table in the world endurance championship, with Jackie Ickx close behind in second spot.
