I wonder if anyone can help? I have a small set of slightly damaged negatives taken in the Aintree paddock of some of the sportscars. I have an HWM race number 30 and an Aston Martin race number 36. Can anyone point me in the direction of an entry list perhaps? Many thanks in advance.

1962 is a little late for an HWM.  It must have been a club meeting.  Neither of my usual references: Martin Krejki's WSRP site or the Racing Sports Cars site mention an HWM at Aintree.

Sounding like they're from a BARC club meeting. Unfortunately I can't help with programmes though.

There was an Aston Martin DB3S at this meeting, in the Unlimited Sports Cars event, 4th overall.

See Autosport, 14 September 1962, Page 363
