As a child he played the more accessible sport of soccer up until the age of twelve and then took up Australian Rules Football when the family moved to Sydney. Growing up, Sir Jack didn't force David into racing, and it was only after discovering go-karts at 17, that he became enthused enough to purchase a second-hand go-kart with his next-door neighbor and begin racing.
