Strange headset - VP Stepstak

I've been given a headset - pretty standard 1" 1/8 Its manufactured by VP for Cane Creek. VP A76C it says.

It doesn't seem to have come with a bottom bearing race - the one you smack down onto the steerer tube.
However both the upper race and lower race are identical, apart from a separate seal and top plate for the top race.
Both races seem to be complete ie not needing any extra bearing surfaces.

My question is this - Should I remove the race surface that's currently jammed onto the steerer tube? If this is the case I'm not sure how I can achieve a rock solid interface between headset and forks, as I won't be able to jam any part of this bottom race onto the forks with out clouting it and damaging the the bearings.

Any help gratefully recieved

Thanks

J
