I am doing some research regarding The January1962 Racing Car Show, and have come across the web page for the Deep Sanderson 301. The caption suggests it was photographed outside of the Olympia show in 1962. See.


Earlier, I had been in touch with the people at Olympia's administration, who informed me that there was no Racing Car Show at Olympia in 1962. The Show did not move there from The Royal Horticulture Hall until 1963 as the programmes for the first three annual Shows indicate. (See url below.)


Moreover, in the photograph of the Deep Sanderson it does not look like having been taken outside Olympia.

I'd be very grateful if someonewould kindly confirm where the January 1962 Racing Car show was held and the dates. I believe it was at:

The Royal Horticultural Hall, 31st December 1961 - 6th January 1962. Am I correct?

Many thanks,

Peter Sampson.

Correct--the 1961/2 Racing Car Show was at the Royal Horticultural Halls Dec 30th-Jan 6th.

The photo certainly is not taken outside Olympia or the RHH
