Albury born Supercar driver, David Reynolds is looking for a top-three result in this weekend’s Bathurst 1000.
Driving for Erebus Motorsport again, Reynolds heads back to Mount Panorama having set a new lap record at the event last year with a blistering time of 2:06.20.
The team has adopted an Australian made-themed livery for the sport’s biggest race with the number nine Penrite-backed Commodore flying the flag for what is an iconic Australian event with international recognition.
“I think the car looks great, and it’s exciting to be able to show off Penrite’s heritage,” Reynolds said.
“Bathurst is Australia’s biggest motor racing event and you can’t get any more Australian than this.”
Erebus built Reynolds a new car at the start of the year and he has made the most of it, being consistently at the front of the field in most races to sit 10th in the 2017 championship.
He has had good form at Bathurst in recent starts, taking pole in 2015 and finishing a close second to Jamie Whincup in 2012.
“It’s the one you really want to win and I’m really looking forward to seeing how we go; we’ve got a few ideas up our sleeves and hopefully they pay off on Sunday,” Reynolds said.
Coming off the back a good performance at the Sandown 500 two weeks ago, where Reynolds qualified fastest for the grid race and co-driver Luke Youlden won the co-drivers race, team manager Barry Ryan is also quietly confident of a strong result.
“Realistically for Bathurst and the rest of the year we are aiming for pole positions and race wins,” Ryan said.
