David made his racing debut later in life, as the successful businessman began competition in the UK’s VW Racing Cup. After three years of competition he made the step up to sportscars, racing in the GT Cup Championship in Group GTB in a Porsche 997 GT3 Cup car to great success. Alongside co-driver James Greenway, the pair recorded four wins and nine podium finishes to secure the title with Pall-Ex Slidesports Racing.

Enjoying Porsche competition, David spent 2016 in a Cayman GT4 racing in selected rounds of the GT4 European Series and finishing fifth in the Gulf 12 Hours. David undertook his Rookie campaign in the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup GB with Slidesports, backed by Pall-Ex and Fuel Card Services, taking one victory in Pro-Am2 en route to fourth in the championship standings.

He then took his Pall-Ex / Fuel Card Services Porsche to the USA, securing a podium in the 24 Hour race at Circuit of the Americas in November, rounding off a successful year of competition.
