This rugged Australian trained to be an accountant until a chance meeting with some motor sport enthusiasts took him hill-climbing. Dave came to Britain in 1962 dreaming of emulating the likes of Brabham, but soon realised that he was too inexperienced to make it at this stage and hitch-hiked home to go about racing in a more serious manner. By 1966 he was back to begin an on-off Formula 3 career which saw him slowly climb the ladder. In 1967 he took the European trail in a Merlyn, winning a race at Ojatia, but during 1968-69 Walker was stuck in Formula Ford in the works Alexis. However, he joined the works Lotus F5 team in 1970, winning the Lombank F3 championship, and in 1971 he was back for more, securing both the Shell and Forward Trust titles. Although a Grand Prix outing in the Lotus turbine was unhappy, he was chosen to partner Fittipaldi in 1972, but apart from a fifth place in the non-title Brazilian GP the year was a personal disaster for Walker, while the Brazilian stormed to his first World Championship. Set to race for GRD in Formula 2 in 1973, Dave suffered two separate road accidents, breaking a leg in one and an arm in the other, but came back to race in 2-litre sports car events. He then had a brief stab at F5000 in 1975, before trying his hand at Canadian Formula Atlantic.
