Erebus signs Reynolds for 2016 season

Outgoing Prodrive racer David Reynolds has secured his future in V8 Supercars with a move to Erebus Motorsport for the 2016 season.

Reynolds' official free agency lasted approximately an hour, with the news that Prodrive won't be extending his deal swiftly followed by his announcement at Erebus.

The 30-year-old will drive the Erebus Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG in place of Will Davison, who will leave the team to join Tekno.

"Although I have had a terrific four years at Prodrive Racing Australia, I am looking forward to a positive change as the lead driver with Erebus,” Reynolds said.

“I am really looking forward to working with the Erebus team. Together we have some amazing strengths that we need to harness and I know we can win.”

A two-time V8 Supercars race winner, Reynolds sits third in the 2015 standings - 12 places up on current Erebus team leader Davison. The aforementioned drivers both have a sole win to their names in this year's campaign.

"David is an exciting driver that has proven himself to be a title threat this year,” said team owner Betty Klimenko.

“As we embark on our fourth season, we needed to sign a driver that’s capable of positioning our cars up the front and David has proven he is capable of doing that.

"I have known David for almost 10 years and knew one day I would have him drive for me."
