Motorsport Memorabilia 1962 Grand Prix commemorative cover
Stirling Moss was seriously injured at Goodwood prior to the start of the season and this effectively ended his racing career. With the emergence of V-8 engines, 1962 was clearly BRM's chance to dominate; Graham Hill achieving 4 victories en route to the Drivers and Constructors Championships. Although Jim Clark accumulated 6 pole positions and 3 wins in the Lotus 25, it was Graham Hill's BRM P57 that led most laps and Clark was the runner up in the final table. Bruce McLaren won a race in the Cooper T60 and came third in the championship. Ross Wardle's artwork depicts the BRM P57s of Graham Hill and Richie Ginther leading from Bruce McLaren in the Cooper-Climax T60. All cars sport the British Racing Green, clearly indicating that the early dominance of the Italian red was temporarily abated.
