How a lifetime Supercars deal broke down in one year
By:

David Reynolds inked what was effectively a lifetime deal with Erebus in 2019 – only to walk out a year later. What went wrong?

That David Reynolds' decade-long deal with Erebus didn't run it's full course isn't entirely surprising... but few would have tipped it would only last one of the 10 years.

The deal was full of bravado from the start. It satisfied both Reynolds' dislike of the negotiating process and Erebus owner Betty Klimenko's love of the extraordinary. At some point it was bound to cause headaches and it was likely to be form related. Neither teams nor drivers tend to truck along for a decade without a dip here and there.
