BRSCC British Saloon Car Championship

All You Need is Love - 1962 index

Peace at the regulation front: again, the championship was open for group 2 cars, in four classes (1000 cc, 2000 cc, 3000 cc and over 3000 cc). The 3000 cc did not attrack too many competitors, so points were rewarded in two rounds only. The champion therefore had to come from another class.
There were too many competitive Jaguars to single out one championship candidate from the over 3000 cc class. Sears, Hill and Parkes each won races and finished the championship only 6 points apart. The 2000 cc class was equally competitive; some Sunbeams and Hutcheson's Riley fought it out, and at the end of the season even the Vauxhall VX 4/90 was competitive. Harper (Sunbeam) won four races and was second in two others, but it was not enough to get the title. It went instead to Rhodesian John Love who won all but one race in the new Mini Cooper, with four fastest laps.
