Walker gained a certain notoriety for his aggressive, sliding style in Peter Whitehead's ERA before the war, and in the late forties became one of the few drivers to glean much success in the E-Type ERA both on the circuits and on the hills, where he put in some stunning performances in 1948. He raced the ERA at the 1950 British GP with Rolt, but it soon failed. He did well to finish the race the following year, however, when he brought the hitherto unreliable BRM into seventh place despite extreme discomfort from a burning-hot exhaust.

Signed by Jaguar in 1951 to race their sports cars, he shared his greatest triumphs with his old friend Peter Whitehead, the pair winning Le Mans and finishing second at Dundrod in the Tourist Trophy. In addition, Walker took second place at Le Mans in 1953, this time with Moss. Moving to Aston Martin, Peter won the Goodwood 9 Hours with Dennis Poore in 1955, and raced single-seaters once more at Zandvoort (for Moss) and Aintree (for Rob Walker). After escaping a nasty accident at Le Mans in 1956 relatively lightly, Walker decided to retire, though he was tempted back one more time, to race Rob Walker's Connaught at Syracuse in 1957.
