Driver was still a top-notch motor cycle rider, having made his name on Nortons, when he flirted briefly with car racing in 1963. Driving a Lotus 24, he finished seventh on aggregate in the Rand Grand Prix at Kyalami, but an end-over-end shunt in practice for the South African GP a fortnight later saw the car destroyed. Miraculously Paddy emerged shaken but unscathed and returned to motor cycle competition with an AJS/Matchless, on which he finished third in the 1965 500 cc World Championship.

His career on four wheels really began to take off in 1969 and from then on he enjoyed success in sports cars and single-seaters including a McLaren M10B-Chevrolet and a Team Gunston Lotus 72. Switching to saloon cars with a Mazda, Paddy continued racing into the eighties.
