An amateur racer who showed a great deal of skill in the Lotus XI sports car in 1958, winning a number of club races, Taylor continued to race the car in 1959, taking victory in the GP des Frontieres at Chimay. He also campaigned a Formula 2 Cooper-Climax and won the BARC 200 at Aintree against moderate opposition, before making his GP debut at the same venue in July. Late in the season, Taylor planned to compete in the US GP, but had to stand down after contracting jaundice.

For the 1960 season, Mike's syndicate bought one of Colin Chapman's latest Lotus 18s, which - after an outing in the International Trophy - he took to Spa for the Belgian GP. In a meeting which saw Moss badly injured and Stacey and Bristow killed, the car careered off the track into the woods during practice after the steering column failed, leaving Taylor with multiple injuries but lucky to have survived. He successfully sued Lotus for damages, but never raced again, instead turning to property speculation.
