Further to Ralph Warburton's article on the 1962 British Grand Prix at Aintree I too was there in the capacity of a marshal – now known as the Orange Brigade.
The Grand Prix was held at Aintree for five years. Two of these were famous. Firstly in 1955 Stirling Moss driving a Mercedes beat the World Champion Juan Manual Fangio and secondly in 1957 the first British car to win a modern Grand Prix was a Vanwall driven by Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks.
International Motor Racing continued at Aintree for a couple more years after 1962 the circuit hosted club meetings for a little longer before final closing.
Attached are a couple of photographs I took at that 1962 meeting one of the winner Jim Clark and one of Jack Brabham both in Lotus cars and both World Champions
