Very sad to hear of the passing of old motormouth Murray. A great commentator and a nice bloke.

Very sad news, although 97 is a fine innings. I religiously followed Formula 1 from 1983 to the late 90s and Murray Walker's voice is one of the key sounds of my childhood. I might fire up some classic F1 80s clips on YouTube later...

In the days before videos were common the only reason I was allowed to stay up late was to watch F1. I've not watched for years either.

RIP Murray.

The attraction of motor racing to me was shared 50:50 with the rollercoaster ride that was Murray Walker's presentational style. :)

What I didn't know was that his father, Graham Walker, riding a 493cc Sunbeam, was a member of the victorious British International Trophy Team at the ISDT [International Six-Day Enduro] held in Buxton 1926 and Ambleside 1927. [Source: wikipda.]

I always use the "...and it's go, go, go!" catchphrase to my wife when she's driving and the traffic lights change.

Such a contrast when he was commentating with James Hunt who could only mutter a couple of things when asked. Very sad news to hear of such a popular broadcaster passing away.

Got something to say?
