'Hawkeye' was another of those tough Aussies who came to Britain in the early sixties with no money, but plenty of determination to further their racing careers and the willingness to graft ceaselessly to achieve their goal.

He found employment in the Healey factory in 1960, with an opportunity to race their Sprites. This led to two happy seasons with Ian Walker's sports car and Formula Junior team, before he was tempted to join John Willment in 1964 to race all sorts of cars, taking an aggregate second place in the Rand GP and winning the Rhodesian GP in an F2 Brabham, the same car that he used to make his GP debut in South Africa in 1965.

Back in Europe, Paul had an unproductive time in Dickie Stoop's Lotus 33, which he spectacularly crashed into the harbour at Monaco, but he won the F2 Eifelrennen in an Alexis. Apart from a few F1 races with Tim Parnell early in 1966, Hawkins turned his attention to sports cars, which offered him a better opportunity to show his talent. Racing his own Ford GT40, he achieved numerous excellent wins and countless placings during 1967 and '68, with his trips to South Africa proving particularly fruitful, and was also in demand by the top sports car teams of the period as a freelance, winning the 1967 Targa Florio for Porsche and the 1967 Paris 1000 Km and the 1968 Monza 1000 Km for John Wyer.

With his Lola T70 run from the factory, 'Hawkeye' embarked on a season of sports car racing in 1969 and it was a terrible blow for the sport when this no-nonsense character lost his life after crashing into a tree during the Tourist Trophy race at Oulton Park.
