David Piper / David Piper Autoracing
David Piper was één van de eerste coureurs die met sponsoring op zijn auto's reed. Sommige sponsors bleven langer, zoals Sandeman, andere wisselden per race. Zijn carriere eindigde toen hij een deel van zijn been verloor tijdens de opnamen van de befaamde Le Mans film in 1970. David reed ondanks zijn handicap nog jarenlang historische races met zijn oude Porsche 917.

David Piper was a good driver and very commercial manager. He was one of the first who had sponsors on his cars. His career ended when he lost part of his leg while he drove a car during filming the Le Mans movie in 1970. Despite his handicap, he raced his green Porsche 917 in historic events for many years.
