Nottingham born Chris Walker (born 1972) started racing in motocross in 1986. Following his first road race win at Malory Park in 1994 his career took off. 'Stalker', as he's affectionately known, became one of Britain's most exciting prospects when he started circuit racing in 1995. By the end of 1996 he'd risen through the ranks with ease and scoring points in Grand Prix races. He's challenged each year from 1997 and 2000 for the prestigious British Superbike Championship and attempted the 500cc World Championship in 2001. Chris took part in the World Superbike Championship in 2002 with Kawasaki, in 2003 with Ducati, in 2004 with Petronas and in 2005 he came seventh place with PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse.
