From farming stock, Piper began his career by competing in sprints and hill-climbs, but soon hit the circuits in a little Lotus XI before buying a Lotus 16 with which, by swapping engines, he raced in both F1 and F2 in 1959-60, perhaps his best result in the car being a second place in the 1960 Lady Wigram Trophy in New Zealand.

In 1961 he joined Jo Siffert on the Continent for a season of Formula Junior racing, before returning home to drive the F1 Gilby in the Gold Cup. Although he did a handful of national F1 races in 1962, he had become disillusioned with single-seaters and bought a Ferrari GTO, which gave his career a new lease of life. Between 1962 and 1970, Piper raced all over the world in his own Ferraris and later Porsches, occasionally winning races in places as far afield as South Africa, Angola, Sweden and Japan, but always proving a reliable driver and a consistent finisher.

In 1970 Piper crashed his Porsche 917 while working on the Steve McQueen film Le Mans, and had the lower part of a leg amputated. Later on, he returned to race in historic events and he has become a mainstay of these enjoyable festivals with his stable of racing thoroughbreds.
