From junior Go-Karting, through to open wheel Formula Ford, exotic sports cars and now V8 Supercars, David’s journey has overcome tragedy to triumph in the world’s most competitive formula of motorsport.
David’s infectious personality has earned him the tag of V8 Supercars ‘class clown’…but there’s no doubting his speed, talent and ability to hold an audience!
David Reynolds enjoyed a massive 2017 with Erebus Motorsport – after his second season with the team, Reynolds took out the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 alongside Luke Youlden on his way to seventh in the points, and won the Barry Sheene Medal – one of the highest regarded motorsport awards.
Known for wearing his heart on his sleeve and unique podium celebrations, Reynolds found a new home at Erebus after losing his Prodrive Racing Australia seat despite finishing third in the 2015 championship.
The move came as Erebus switched from its Mercedes to Commodores, relocated from the Gold Coast to Melbourne and rebuilt its staff.
After signs of promise in 2016 those changes paid off last year.
Reynolds won multiple Australian titles on his way to the Supercars grid, including the 2004 Australian Formula Ford Championship and 2007 Porsche Carrera Cup crown.
He made his Supercars debut in 2007 as an endurance driver at Sandown and Bathurst, and entered the Dunlop Super2 Series the following year.
Fourth place led to a full-time drive in Supercars for 2009 and while he was the highest-placed rookie that year, he was left without a drive for ’10.
Reynolds moved back to the main series for 2011 with Kelly Racing and a number of attention-grabbing performances led to his switch to Rod Nash’s entry within Ford Performance Racing.
Second at Bathurst in 2012 was a major highlight, and he also snagged pole position at Mount Panorama in 2015, remaining in title contention until late that year.
