this is the classification according to the french magazin "Sport-Auto", september '69 issue:
1st, Andrea de Adamich, Alfa Romeo 33/3, 39 laps, 1h17'24"17
2nd, Jo Bonnier, Lola T70, 1 lap behind
3rd, Otto Stupacher, Porsche 906 Carrera 6, 1 lap behind
Brief remark on Masten Gregory: "En t√™te, sur la 908 de Richard Brostr√∂m, Masten Gregory tombait en panne dans le dernier tour, mais √©tait pouss√© par Brostr√∂m. Une r√©clamation d'Autodelta les disqualifiaient"
Then, according to "Sport-Auto", Masten was disqualified after being pushed by his teammate Richard Brostr√∂m, following a complaint from Autodelta.

This is part of the Motoring News report.
The race, over 40 laps of the 3.73-mile track developed into a battle between Gregory and Bonnier, followed by de Adamich and the two Porsche Salzburg 908s driven by Peter Peter and Rudi Lins. David Piper spun his Lola T70 and couldn't restart, and Picko Troberg was terribly unlucky when his Lola was completely written off by Ronnie Peterson, luckily without injury. Earlier this year, Troberg's first Lola was totalled by Bjorn Rothstein at the 'Ring.
Dr Helmut Marko had a good day at the Osterreichring, winning the saloon race in his Chevrolet Camaro and the Vee event in his McNamara Sebring.

In AUTOSPORT from 08 AUGUST 1969 it was said that this result was in doubt.
As the PORSCHE 910 was pushing his team mate the PORSCHE 908 of Masten GREGORY
on the finish line because blowing up his motor,the PORSCHE 908 was one lap
before the ALFA ?
Does any one know something about the result of the two 908 of team AUSTRIA.
Did they have to retire?
Thanks in advance.
