Dave was still in the sport until the early 2010's as he worked as an engineer and consultant in lower formulae with Ralph Firman Sr.'s F2000 team. Then Baldwin was retired as was Firman, but both got bored of this situation and so both are now back in racing, as they now run RFR cars, based in Norfolk. They supply cars to lower formulae series, such as BRDC F4, Formula Gulf and US Formula 1000, with Dave still designing the cars. Was a shareholder at Van Diemen before he retired in 1999, but Ralph brought him back a few years later. Dave - or David - as he's also referred to - started at Lotus and designed the Lotus 59 and 62 Formula 2 and Formula 3 cars. Baldwin also worked on Formula 3 cars for Ensign initially, before spending a good few years in Formula 1 as a designer.
