Finishing his first season with Erebus Motorsport on the podium in 2016’s final race, David Reynolds is looking to help his team take another step forward in 2017 alongside new teammate Dale Wood.
On the back of his best Supercars season in 2015, earning third in the Championship, Reynolds signed at developing squad Erebus Motorsport after losing his seat with Prodrive.
Wearing his heart on his sleeve, and drinking out of his shoe celebrating in Darwin, it was a roller-coaster year for quirky character Reynolds.
Erebus Motorsport transformed in his first season there, switching to run Holden Commodores, moving to Melbourne from Brisbane and taking on an all-new driver and engineer line-up that has solidified for 2017.
Reynolds won multiple Australian titles on his way to earning a seat in the Supercars Championship, including the national Formula Ford Championship in 2004 and the 2007 Porsche Carrera Cup crown.
He made his V8 Supercars debut in the same year as an endurance driver at Sandown and Bathurst, before driving in the Dunlop Series the following year.
Fourth place in the development category led to a full-time drive in V8 Supercars in 2009 and while he was the highest-placed rookie that year, there was no full-time drive for 2010, necessitating a move back into enduro driver mode.
He moved back to the main series for 2011 and a number of attention-grabbing performances led to team owner Rod Nash securing his services. Second at Bathurst in 2012 was a major highlight, and he also snagged pole position at Mount Panorama in 2015.
