The 3rd Reims Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race, held on July 1, 1962 at the Reims-Gueux circuit, near Reims in France. The race was run over 50 laps of the 8.302 km circuit and was won by New Zealand driver Bruce McLaren in a Cooper T60.

Reims-Gueux hosted the French Grand Prix under Grand Prix regulations in 1932, 1938 and 1939 due to the popularity of the Grand Prix de la Marne, a Grand Prix racing series dating back to 1925. Post war changes in political and financial structures moved the 1962 Grand Prix de France to the Rouen-Les-Essarts circuit. Reims secured a separate non-championship Formula One event instead. Most of the Formula One teams entered the competition except for Ferrari and Porsche.
