Prior to joining P1 SuperStock in 2014, Dave Taft raced in GT30 boats and enjoyed some podium results. He picked up the 2014 Rookie of the Year gong, racing the Hull Speed Ahead P1 Panther alongside good friend Gavin Feldt.
In 2015, Dave joined forces with E-Marine Racing's Lee Norvall to form New Wave and in 2016 Dave joined Arthur J Gallagher for the second round of the P1 SuperStock Grand Prix of the Sea, in Greenock, going on to complete the season alongside Andy Cousins.
He had the experience of a lifetime in March 2017 as he was drafted in to drive the second Mirchi Mavericks P1 Panther at the inaugural P1 SuperStock World Championships in Mumbai, India. That experience will no doubt put him in a great position heading into the UK season and as Arthur J Gallagher celebrate 90 years he will be hoping to mark it with championship victory.
Outside of racing Dave enjoys family holidays and is a keen Badminton player.
