David Reynolds has secured a place at Erebus after being released by Prodrive Racing Australia.
In a co-ordinated strike, Erebus moved to confirm Reynolds will join the Queensland-based team within an hour of the announcement the 30-year-old will be released from Prodrive Racing Australia at the end of the season.
Reynolds will take the seat vacated by Tekno-bound Will Davison.
“Although I have had a terrific four years at PRA, I am looking forward to a positive change as the lead driver with Erebus,” Reynolds said.
The Victorian-based driver, currently third behind Mark Winterbottom and Craig Lowndes on the points table in his most successful season to date, will lead the E63 AMG team.
“I am really looking forward to working with the Erebus team,” Reynolds said.
“Together we have some amazing strengths that we need to harness, I know we can win together.”
Erebus Motorsport owner Betty Klimenko says Reynolds is capable of placing the squad at the front in its fourth season after acquiring Stone Brothers Racing.
“David is an exciting driver that has proven himself to be a title threat this year,” Klimenko said.
“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”.
