An outstanding prospect Irwin made an immediate impression in his first full Formula 3 season in 1964, taking third in the Grovewood Awards. Further success in F3 with the Chequered Flag Merlyn brought him a works Formula 2 drive for that marque in 1965. He then gained a works drive for Brabham in 1966, concentrating on F3 but occasionally racing in F2, and scoring a fine third place in the Albi GP. Given an old four-cylinder-engined Brabham, Chris finished seventh on his GP debut at Brands Hatch, impressing Tim Parnell, who signed him along with Piers Courage to share the semi-works BRM for 1967.

In fact, Courage made a tardy start to the season, while Irwin, after scoring a fourth at Sandown Park and a third at Longford in the Tasman series, followed by sixth place in the Race of Champions and fourth at Syracuse in Parnell's old Lotus 25-BRM, took his chance with some solid and sensible drives in both the 2-litre car and the heavy and unreliable H16, which he took to fifth in the French GP.

Chris had also joined up with John Surtees to race the works Lola in Formula 2, winning the 1968 Eifelrennen race at the Nurburgring and finishing third at Zolder, before a return to the 'Ring in Alan Mann's Ford PL3 sports car ended in a catastrophic practice crash. Poor Chris received very serious head injuries, from which he eventually made a recovery, but he never raced again.
