David Reynolds will join Erebus Motorsport from next season, meaning he will contest the 2016 season in Erebus’ Mercedes-Benz E63.

Reynolds who was dismissed from Prodrive last week will replace Will Davidson at Erebus, who himself is departing for Tecko Autosport.

The 30 year-old, who has Formula Ford and Carrera Cup Championships to his name is looking forward to his role of lead driver.

“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.

I am really looking forward to working with the Erebus team. Together we have some amazing strengths that we need to harness, I know we can win together.”

While Erebus owner Betty Klimenko believe this is the step that Erebus needed to take to make them a top team.

“David is an exciting driver that has proven himself to be a title threat this year,” Klimenko explains.

“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.”

From 2016 the combination will look to add to Erebus’s two wins that it has had in it’s four years in the series.
