Graham began racing Peter's ERA in 1951, and then drove his F2 Alta in the 1952 British GP, before a long and generally successful period when he competed in Jaguar and Aston Martin sports cars, often paired with his half-brother. Their greatest success together was second place in the 1958 Le Mans 24 Hours, only weeks before the crash in the Tour de France in which Peter was killed. Graham escaped serious injury and returned to competition racing an Aston Martin and then a Ferrari 250GT until the end of the 1961 season.
