Gatton Street Sprints was the first event on the DB Autotech Racing calendar for 2009. David had not driven the Westfield 'Warhorse' since he left Brisbane to work in Melbourne 12 years ago. The Warhorse was the first Westfield registered in Queensland back in 1991 by David's father Eric Blythe. It has been a regular at Gatton ever since though, this was the first time David was behind the wheel. It didn't take him long to get used to being back in the drivers seat and he was posting some very quick times, even though he was competing against other cars in his class with 125kW or more and he only had 87kW!!
