Gary Anderson, one of the most respected British motorsport engineers, has been appointed Reynard North America Technical Director and Chief Technical Liaison Engineer and joins the company on March 1st. Anderson, 49, returns to Reynard after ten years in Formula 1, having left the company in 1990 after a two year period as Chief Designer.

Mark Smithson, Managing Director, Reynard Motorsport, "We are very fortunate to have Gary joining the company as Reynard North America Technical Director and Chief Technical Liaison Engineer. Gary takes on a role that is critical to the success of our race programmes, particularly ChampCar, and I know that he will be a welcome and valuable addition to Reynard. With over 25 years experience in top level motorsport, Gary brings vast knowledge and expertise, which we need to continue to produce winning cars.

"Gary will be a central point of contact for all technical enquiries from our teams. He will also ensure that we have close communication between our teams and our design office. Gary will be helping us push new standards."

Anderson adds, "I am looking forward to my new role at Reynard, working in both the USA and UK operations. I am no stranger to ChampCars and have always enjoyed the racing and excitement of the Series. The technology and engineering within the sport is advancing at a very fast pace and it will present a new challenge for me to be part of this growth. I will be in the front line at races and plan to build close working relationships with the customers, so that we can continue to develop the cars and win races."

Reynard Motorsport has won six consecutive Drivers and Constructors CART championships, dominating the FedEx Championship Series since the company entered in 1994. In Formula Nippon, Reynard is the dominant constructor and has produced Championship winning cars for the last two years.
