Not able to follow the traditional and massively expensive route of carting, David would spend the next 10 years honing his skills in the park, and on simulators. By 15, David had raised enough money mowing lawns to buy himself his first car.

In December 2014, David placed 2nd in the competition giving him funding and his first sponsors for his future racing career, starting with the 2015 Skip Barber Summer Series.
