Anderson rode the 50cc and 125cc singles and Frank Perris rode the RV62 250cc twin. Hugh Anderson won the 50cc race by a country mile but retired with plug trouble in the 125cc race.

Perris riding the 250cc twin won the 250cc race with ease and recorded what I think was that bikes only win that year. The 250cc RV62 twin was very unreliable and prone to seizing.
