From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Paul Walton is a British motoring journalist.
His career started in 1999 working for Classic Cars magazine before moving to BBC Top Gear Magazine in 2002.
Highlights during his time at the two magazines included a twin-engined Citroën 2CV Sahara in the Israeli desert, a Ferrari 250 SWB on a closed off section of San Marino, driving a BMW 325i to Spain so it could be assessed by the then WilliamsF1 test driver, Marc Gene and taking a Gibbs Aquada amphibious car for a spin around Monte Carlo's harbour during the Monaco Grand Prix.
