Worked for many years as a farmer. Pre-war ace who started his career in 1935 after linking up with his good friend Peter Whitehead. Walker won at Brooklands and Donington Park prior to World War 2, and then took up the sport again after the hostilities. He proved a strong driver in most disciplines, but was most adept in sports cars, winning Le Mans in 1951 and two Goodwood 9 Hours races. Effectively retired after a crash in 1956 left him with serious injuries, racing just once more in an one-off race at Syracuse in 1957. Died after suffering from dementia and pneumonia.
