David Reynolds has let the cat out of the bag and officially announced he will be racing with Kelly Grove Racing in the 2021 Supercars Championship.
The 2017 Bathurst 1000 winner was left a free agent after splitting with Erebus Motorsport just one season into a ten-year deal.
The untimely exit narrowed Reynolds’ options for the 2021 season, with a drive in the Kelly Grove Mustang the most enticing offer.
“I’m unbelievably happy to be joining Kelly Grove Racing for the 2021 season and beyond,” Reynolds said.
“It’s obviously a very exciting time for the team with the recent investment from the Grove Group and I believe the team has the resources and firepower to achieve great things this year and continue building on some of the success we saw last year.
“I think we’re on the cusp of something really awesome at Kelly Grove Racing, the infrastructure and culture that’s in place has already really impressed me and I’m excited for the 2021 season.
“I’m also looking forward to working with André as his team-mate, we’ll definitely push each other and hopefully get the two Mustangs up the pointy end.”
Reynolds’ last drive in a Ford car was back in 2015 with Rod Nash Racing. That season had the 35-year-old finish third overall, his best championship result to date.
His teammate for the new year is Kiwi driver Andre Heimgartner who is in his third season with the squad.
Reynolds has also brought along Australian oil giant Penrite as his title sponsor for the new season.
The black, red and gold livery will don the Mustang across the full 12-round calendar. The first is the Mount Panorama 500 on February 27-28.
