David was a semi-regular BTCC driver in the late 1980s and early 1990s, in a BMW from 1992 to 1993. He also briefly raced in the series in 2001, in a rather unreliable Alfa Romeo 147, leaving the JSM team after four rounds.
In 2006 he raced in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) in one of the 2005 championship-winning Honda Integra cars. He took a pair of top 5 finishes at Thruxton in rounds 11 and 12, following it with 2 more points finishes at Croft and a podium in race three at Knockhill. For 2007, he drove an N technology built Alfa 156 run by the newly-established A-Tech team along side Richard Marsh. After a handful of points finishes, his involvement in an 11-car pile-up at Brands Hatch left him in hospital and the car severely damaged.
After competing in the British GT Championship in 2008, he has returned to the BTCC in 2009, driving for Team Dynamics, with three different team-mates - Gordon Shedden at the first round, former Formula One race-winner Johnny Herbert in the final three, and double series champion James Thompson in between.
For 2010, Pinkney will drive a Vauxhall Vectra, run by his own team Pinkney Motorsport.
His car liveries generally contain a large amount of pink, in deference to his name. The slogan "Pink My Ride" (a play on Pimp My Ride) appears on the top of his windscreen. At the 2009 Knockhill meeting, Dunlop specially produced pink-rimmed tyres for his car.
On 13 April 2007, following the resignation of chairman Bill Tomlins, it was announced that he would be taking over Luton Town Football Club. The club went into administration on 22 November that same year.
