This race was held directly after the 1962 Lavant Cup, on the same day at the same circuit. Bruce McLaren, who had won the Lavant Cup, finished second in this race. Another Formula One race, the 1962 Pau Grand Prix, was also held on the same day.

This event was particularly notable for the serious accident suffered by Stirling Moss, which ended his racing career.
