David Reynolds officially parted ways with Erebus Motorsport within a decade and signed a ten-year contract with the Supercars squad.

The 2017 Bathurst 1000 winner has long been expected to split with the Holden roster after a difficult 2020 campaign that included a breakdown of his relationship with Erebus CEO Barry Ryan in bad shape.

The team confirmed today that Reynolds has been released from the 10-year contract he signed just last year.

« David has been an important part of our team since we moved to Melbourne in 2016, » said Erebus owner Betty Klimenko.

« We have shared a lot of success, including winning the 2017 Bathurst 1000, and we thank David for all of his efforts.

« Unfortunately, David has decided that his future lies elsewhere and we don’t want to stop him from taking another path.

« David has to do what is best for him and we have to do what is best for the future and long-term stability of our team.

« Unfortunately we couldn’t reach an agreement and had to go our separate ways.

« I preferred to stay with Erebus but unfortunately it’s time for me to move on, » he said.

« I really enjoyed my time with the team and leaving was a very difficult decision.

« The team is made up of a fantastic group of people who I’ve built very close relationships with over the past five years and I’m proud of what we’ve achieved together. « 

Reynolds joined Erebus in 2016 after being dismissed from Prodrive Racing Australia.

This coincided with a significant shift on the part of the team, ditching their uncompetitive Mercedes hardware in favor of Commodores and moving from the Gold Coast to Melbourne.

A turn in luck was quick. Reynolds helped turn the roster into regular front runners and semi-regular race winners.

The grand finale was that Reynolds and Luke Youlden teamed up to win the 2017 Great Race.

After flirting with a move last year when Reynolds was out of contract, Reynolds made a lifelong commitment to the squad with a 10-year deal.

However, the once rosy team-driver relationship worsened significantly over the course of an interrupted 2020 season, and the breakup became inevitable as the year progressed.

As reported by Autosport, Brodie Kostecki is expected to work with Will Brown in a brand new Erebus line-up in 2021. Anton de Pasquale is moving to Dick Johnson Racing.

Reynolds will join Kelly Racing alongside Andre Heimgartner to return to Ford Hardware.

Ironically, Reynolds was previously a KR driver – and in controversial circumstances left the company halfway through a contract to switch to Prodrive in 2012.
