DRIVERS: DAVID WALKER

Name: David Walker
Nationality: Australia
Date of birth: June 10, 1941 - Sydney, New South Wales

This rugged Australian dominated the 1971 British Formula 3 Championship in a works Lotus 69 before being promoted to the Formula 1 team as Emerson Fittipaldi's number two the following year. Disappointingly, he was totally outclassed by the Brazilian in a situation where parity of the Lotus 72s provided for the two men was open to some doubt. Thereafter he faded from the racing scene and recently had some success in the yacht charter business on the eastern coast of Australia.
