Team 18 has announced the signing of David Reynolds from the 2024 season, replacing Scott Pye alongside Mark Winterbottom.
Reynolds leaves Grove Racing at the conclusion of the current season, where he will be replaced by Richie Stanaway.
Reynolds’ arrival at Team 18 marks a reunion with team manager Bruin Beasley and crew chief Dennis Huijser, who worked alongside him during his time at Erebus Motorsport.
“This is just a really exciting time for me… I’ve worked with Bruin [Beasley] and Dennis [Huijser] when we won Bathurst,” he says.
“We get along really well and I respect everything they do. On top of that I get to race alongside Frosty [Winterbottom] and people forget that the last season we raced together, Mark and I finished first and third in the championship back in 2015.
“I can’t thank Charlie [Schwerkolt] enough. I’ve always admired Charlie and how he conducts himself and his team. Funnily enough I’ve always had this feeling that maybe one day I’d race for Charlie, I cannot wait to join him and his team.”
Team owner Charlie Schwerkolt added: “We are excited to welcome David Reynolds to Team 18 as we gear up for the 2024 Repco Supercars championship season.
“David’s track record, both in terms of his accomplishments and his extensive knowledge of the sport is impressive, and he will be a great fit for the culture we have built at Team 18.
“His addition to the team reflects our pursuit of on-track success and our commitment to secure high-class talent to our organisation.
“We look forward to a strong partnership and a bright future together.”
