This race was held directly before the 1962 Glover Trophy, on the same day at the same circuit, with some drivers taking part in both events. Another Formula One race, the 1962 Pau Grand Prix, was also held on the same day. The Lavant Cup was normally a Formula Two race, but for 1962 it was open to Formula One cars with four-cylinder engines, thus excluding the BRMs and those cars using the Climax V8 engine. The V6 Ferraris were at the Pau event, so they were not affected by this rule.
