David Reynolds will remain at Erebus Motorsport for a third season after signing a contract extension with the Melbourne squad.
The 32-year-old joined the team in 2016 after a four-year stint with the Prodrive Racing outfit, peaking with third overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings in his final year with the squad.
While the exact length of the contract extension hasn’t been made public, Reynolds indicated he had no second thoughts about remaining with the team owned by retail heiress Betty Klimenko.
““I’m stating the obvious a bit, I told them I wasn’t talking to anyone else and wasn’t going anywhere else,” Reynolds said.
“I’m extremely happy with everything and I think they’re happy with me. I love going racing and I love representing Penrite; we have a really good group of people that are passion about what they do and are also able to have a good time.
“I’ve enjoyed racing cars more than I ever have so for me it’s a no-brainer [to re-sign].”
“The partnership between Dave, myself and the team is basically a lifetime commitment, we don’t see that changing,” added team owner Klimenko.
“What we have now is the perfect fit and the contract [extension] is just a formality, although I can now say that it is signed.”
Reynolds has enjoyed a successful start to his 2017 campaign, claiming seven top-ten finishes to-date including a podium finish in the second race at Phillip Island. He currently sits eighth overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings.
