Walker, Robert Ramsay Campbell (GB)

b 14/08/1917 - d 29/04/2002 (Frome)


Best known for running the eponymous private team R.R.C.Walker Racing, which won 9 Grand Prix, including the first wins for Lotus and Cooper chassis (most famously with Stirling Moss), Rob Walker was born into the Johnny Walker whisky family. He caught the racing bug at the age of seven, when he was taken to France to watch the 1924 Boulogne Grand Prix. He learnt to fly, but subsequently had his air license taken away when he lapped Cottenham horse race course at ground level in a Gypsy Moth, taking all of the jumps. A local policeman took a dim view, noted down his number, and informed the Air Ministry. He only regained it when he joined the RAF for World War II.
He made his competition debut in a Lea-Francis at the Lewes Speed Trials, before purchasing an ex-Bira Delahaye 135 which he ran at Brooklands and Le Mans, finishing 8th with Ian Connell. He married Betty Duncan in 1940, and promised never to race cars again, limiting himself to speed trials and hillclimbs until 1957. He also set Pippbrook Garage in Dorking, from where he based his race team.
RRC Walker Racing first entered F1 in 1957, with Stirling Moss as driver. Moss and Walker never ever had a signed contract between them - Walker's word was totally trusted by Moss, and a handshake was all that was required to know that whatever had been agreed would be honoured.
In 1971 Ron joined with the Surtees F1 team, and in 1974 McLaren, but his days as a race team owner were coming to an end, with R.R.C.Walker Racing making a brief appearance in 1975 to run a newcomer called Alan Jones in a Hesketh 308. Instead, he turned to journalism, writing race reports for the American magazine Road & Track. He eventually succumbed to a short illness, and was survived by his wife, his daughter Dauvigney and son Rob. Perhaps he can be best summed up by his passport: under the heading "Profession", it simply read "Gentleman".

Wilkinson, Walter Ernest "Wilkie" (GB)

b 7/8/1903 (London) - d 20/8/2001 (Easenhall, Warwickshire)


Wilkie Wilkinson was a fifth son of a printer who started grammar school but left at the age of 14 to get into engineering while the First World War was still in progress, joining the Blakers Motor and Welding Company in East Finchley in 1917. He stayed there for seven years, leaving in 1924 to work as a coach driver and mechanic in Dorset. He moved back to London in 1929, joining the company L.C.Rawlence, an importer of high performance Italian cars, and from this gained the opportunity to join the OM race team, riding as mechanic to Giulio Ramponi at Ards. When the first Maserati 8C sports cars arrived in the UK, Wilkinson became mechanic to George Eyston, riding in the Brooklands 12 hrs race in May 1931.
Wilkinson moved as chief mechanic to Bellevue Garages of Wandsworth, which specialised in racing MG's. It was during this period that Wilkinson started racing himself, driving Billy Cotton's Riley at Crystal Palace in 1937, and shared Cotton's ERA to 7th place in the 1938 British Grand Prix at Donington Park. The war intervened and Bellevue Garages closed, so Wilkinson moved to Gloucestershire to join Rotol Airscrews for the duration of the war.
In 1947 Wilkinson joined up with Reg Parnell at Highfield Garages in Derby, racing cars all over Europe, but in 1950 he moved to Edinburgh to work for David Murray at Merchiston Motors. Ecurie Ecosse was born the following year, and in 1952 Wilkinson had his last competition drive in a Cooper-Bristol.
Wilkinson tuned Jaguar's, winning the 1956 Le Mans 24 Hrs with Ron Flockhart and Ninian Sanderson, and the 1957 event with Flockhart and Ivor Bueb. In 1961, with Graham Hill preparing to sign up, Wilkinson joined BRM as team manager, a team who he had turned down in 1950. However, the internal politics were too much, but he enjoyed his time working on the Rover-BRM gas turbine sportscar, as well as Matra's BRM engined car. He retired from BRM in 1972, and on the death of his wife Dorothy in 1977, he decided that he would spend his winter months in the Caribbean, and he could be seen well into the 1980s fishing with the locals. In 2000 he was becoming too frail to care for himself, so he entered the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund home at Easenhall, Warwickshire, where he spent the rest of his days.

Wimille, Jean-Pierre (F)

b 26/02/1908 (Paris) - d 28/01/1949 (Buenos Aires)

Born to the Le Petit Parisien motor journalist Auguste Wimille, Jean-Pierre initially dreamt of joining the Merchant Navy. However, National Service intervened and he was sent to Morocco towards the end of the Rif War, where he was selected to be a staff driver. He spent 14 months driving the powerful cars of the Sultan of Morocco fast around the desert, and on his return he started proper racing.
His first race was the 1930 French GP at Pau, where his Bugatti Type 37A blew its supercharger on the second lap. He followed this up by entering the Monte Carlo Rally with Marcel Lesurque in a Lorraine Dietrich, and starting from Stavanger, he finished second to Donald Healey. He spent the rest on the 1931 season racing in various European GPs with Jean Gaupillat in a Bugatti T51, each race lasting some ten hours. 
Wimille obtained a Bugatti T54 in 1932, and managed a fastest time of the day on the La Turbie hillclimb in March, although it broke down in Tunisia later in April. He returned the car to the factory, and borrowed a Bugatti T51 for the Oran GP in Algeria, which he proceeded to win. He then purchased an Alfa Romeo 8C-2300 Monza, and won first time out in Nancy. A series of accidents over the rest of the season made him rethink his driving style though. 
He didn't manage to win in 1933, but he sufficiently impressed to gain a works Bugatti drive for 1934. This was the first season of the 750kg Formula, and the Mercedes and Auto Union teams swept Bugatti aside. Bugatti's main drivers fled to other teams, and Wimille was left to lead the team with Robert Benoist. 
Driving a series of specials, Wimille won the 1936 ACF GP (with Sommer), the 1937 Le Mans 24 Hrs (with Benoist) and the 1939 Le Mans 24 Hrs (with Veyron) in a series of Type 57 derivatives. However, in August 1939 Jean Bugatti died, and the following month France was at war. 
Wimille was an experienced pilot, having flown himself to East London for the 1936 South African GP, so he signed up for the Armée de l'Air. The rapid German advance and the early capitulation of France meant that he never saw action, and he returned to Paris, where he worked on plans for a saloon car, with a rear engine, all-round independent suspension and three seats abreast with the driver located centrally. This was 50 years before the McLaren F1 used the same idea. 
Bugatti teammate "Williams" formed a resistance network in Paris, but on capture by the Gestapo, a new group with the name Clergyman was set up by Robert Benoist, to which Wimille and his wife were recruited. The group spent the months before the Normandy landings collecting weapons and ammunition dropped by the RAF. However, hours after D-Day, Benoist was captured in Paris and the remainder of the group were ambushed at a farmhouse meeting spot. Wimille escaped under gunfire, but his wife Cric remained rooted to the spot with fear. Wimille linked up with a column of Americans heading for Paris, while Cric was imprisoned at Frèsnes. She was subsequently put on a train for Germany, from which she escaped just outside of Paris, and she was reunited with her husband at the house of friends. 
Wimille rejoined the Armée de l'Air for the end of the war, but only gained last minute permission to enter the first post-war GP in Paris's Bois de Boulogne on the 9th September 1945. Arriving at the race late, he had to start at the back of the grid in his Bugatti Type 59/50B 4700cc, but easily powered through the field to win the race. 
The only works team in 1946 was Alfa Corse, so he joined this Italian team. At St Cloud he did not finish due to mechanical problems, and at Geneva he finished 3rd, having at one stage been spun off by teammate Nuvolari. In Turin Wimille was comfortably leading the race when he was ordered to let teammate Varzi through. Legend has it that he stopped 200m before the line, waited for Varzi to pass, and then took the flag. 
Wimille drove six races for Alfa Corse through 1947 and 1948, the Alfa Romeo 158 being by far the best car, and he won the '47 Swiss and Belgian GPs, and the '48 French, Monza and Italian GPs. As the Alfa team only entered the major races, Wimille was free to race for others. For 1946 he drove an 8 year old Alfa Romeo 308 for Ecurie Naphtra Course, winning all the national Formule Libre races entered. For 1947 and 1948, he raced for Gordini, and when the cars held together, he won races, winning twice in 1947, and winning the 1948 Rosario GP in Argentina, part of the Temporada series.
Wimille returned to Argentina in 1949, aiming to repeat his win in the Rosario GP. Before this, came the Palermo GP in Buenos Aires. Practice started at 5am, and Wimille drove a few laps before coming into the pits and putting on a crash helmet for the first time in his career. Wimille had been disquieted by the crowds encroaching onto the track, and on his first flying lap, approaching the Curva des Ombues, Wimille's Gordini span, touched a straw bale, launched into the air and smashed into a tree. Wimille, unconcious, was rushed to the Hospital Fernandez with a cracked skull and crushed chest. He died within minutes of admission. As to why he span, some suggest that he was momentarily blinded by the rising sun, some suggest that he was forced to take a wider line into the corner to avoid spectators who had encroached onto the track, resulting in him skidding on the dusty surface. Wimille was posthumously awarded the Legion d'Honneur at his funeral.
