Racing History: “I was fascinated since early childhood by speed and racecars and convinced my father to let me try Kart Racing at the age of 12. Performing well at that first trial race I started Karting and won the National Championship in my second year. After a few years I started racing cars but put racing on hold after two seasons. In 2013 I attended the Porsche Sports Driving School for their licensing program and since 2014 attended their advanced program several times. This led back to racing in the USA where I’ve been competing since 2016.”
Introduction of driver: Having started at a very young age in Karting, David put his racing career on hold after his first two seasons in car racing. In 2013, he entered the race licensing program at Porsche Sports Driving School and went on to complete the advanced program.
