Prodrive Racing Australia has confirmed that V8 funny man David Reynolds will depart the team after the 2015 Season.
David Reynolds has been fighting for his seat in the team after their DVS driver, Cameron Waters, has proven he deserves a seat in 2016.
Whilst David is currently sitting 3rd in the points with 4 podiums and a race win in Darwin this year, it seems that it won’t be enough for him to retain his drive at the Championship leading team.
Reynolds is rumoured to join Erebus Motorsport in 2016 after Will Davison’s departure after missing contract deadlines to join Brad Jones Racing.
“We have been discussing next season with Dave and as we were not yet in a position to confirm if we will have a place for him, he asked to be allowed to explore the possibility of driving for another team in 2016,” said Rod Nash Racing Team Principal, Rod Nash to AutoAction
“He appreciates our position and we also understand his, but whatever happens everyone in the team is supportive of Dave securing a good position for a 2016 drive as he has fitted in well during his four years with the whole PRA team while driving The Bottle-O #55 car.”
“Dave is a great character and can turn on the funny charm at times which makes him easy to get along with. He also takes his racing seriously and it has been great for him, especially in 2015, to really show his great capability as a front-running driver.”
David Reynolds joined the team back in 2012 after a brief stint at Kelly Racing in 2011. Since joining PRA he took his maiden win on the Gold Coast in 2013 and again at Darwin this year. He has also had 10 podiums and six pole positions at the team.
“The team knows racing is my career so I need to give myself the best chance of having a drive next year and beyond,” Reynolds said to AutoAction
“I have been hanging out to try and stay at Prodrive Racing but there are so many factors that go into these things and I appreciate they aren’t yet in a position to confirm whether I am staying or not. We both know where we stand so there are no hard feelings.”
