David Lee Pinkney (born 5th July, 1952 or 1962 in Bridlington, Yorkshire, England) is a British racing driver and businessman, most notable for his appearances in the British Touring Car Championship and World Touring Car Masters.
In 1990, Pinkney made his first foray onto the world stage - entering the WTCM in both of the UK-based rounds in a self-run Ford Sierra Sapphire. Pinkney ran well in the qualifying rounds at Brands Hatch, planting his self-run car in third place on the grid for the Endurance race on Saturday. He managed to keep his cool and score an impressive seventh place and the best of the non-Works or satellite teams. He'd drop further back in the Sprint race and out of the points but remained in a respectable thirteenth place.
Pinkney returned to the British rounds of the WTCM championship in 1991, this time with a newly-built BMW 318i. At Donington Park, he finished the race in 14th place - the last of the finishers. Around this time, Pinkney struck up a good relationship with Matt Neal and his father Steve - setting the scene for the trio to start the Team Dynamics concern in the following years.
