Kelly Grove Racing confirms Reynolds return

David Reynolds

Kelly Grove Racing has confirmed David Reynolds will make his Repco Supercars Championship return at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend after a two-round hiatus.

Reynolds missed the second and third event in the four-part Sydney swing after his COVID-19 vaccination exemption was ruled invalid by NSW Health.

The Melburnian was thought to be unlikely to contest the fourth Sydney event due to the scheduling of his second COVID-19 vaccination dose booked only prior to the Repco Bathurst 1000.

However, the 36-year-old was administered his second dose earlier this week ahead of schedule.

The Braeside-based squad confirmed the news in a statement.

“Kelly Grove Racing is pleased to announce that David Reynolds will be returning for Round 11 of the Supercars Championship this weekend,” the statement read.

“David is fully vaccinated and has fulfilled the requirements by NSW Health and Supercars to participate in this season’s penultimate event.

“Kelly Grove Racing would like to thank Luke Youlden for the phenomenal job he has done in David’s absence, and we are excited to have him back with us at the Bathurst 1000 early next month.”

Reynolds is slated to contest this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 with Luke Youlden, who drove the Penrite Racing #26 Ford Mustang in the two most recent Supercars events in Sydney.
