DAVID REYNOLDS, PENRITE OIL JOIN KELLY GROVE RACING
David Reynolds will contest the #26 Penrite Racing Ford Mustang for the team
David Reynolds is a highly accomplished driver with multiple race wins to his name, including a Bathurst 1000 win in 2017.
David’s Ford Mustang will be backed by Australian family-owned and operated oil company Penrite. Alistair McVean, who has a long-standing relationship with David, has been appointed to Kelly Grove Racing to engineer the #26.
Penrite’s state of the art production facility is based in south east Melbourne, only a short drive from Kelly Grove Racing’s headquarters in Braeside.
It produces a range of locally developed 10 Tenths motorsport-developed lubricants for maximum performance and protection to ensure Kelly Grove Racing’s V8 engines continue to perform flawlessly on the racetrack, and work is already underway between Kelly Grove Racing’s in-house engine department and Penrite’s technical team to develop a range of oils and lubricants suited to the team’s Ford Mustang Supercars.
With Penrite founded in Melbourne in the year 1926, David will adopt the number #26 for his Penrite-backed Ford Mustang.
“I’m unbelievably happy to be joining Kelly Grove Racing for the 2021 season and beyond. It’s obviously a very exciting time for the team with the recent investment from the Grove Group and I believe the team has the resources and firepower to achieve great things this year and continue building on some of the success we saw last year,” David said.
“I think we’re on the cusp of something really awesome at Kelly Grove Racing, the infrastructure and culture that’s in place has already really impressed me and I’m excited for the 2021 season.
“It’s awesome for me to have a few familiar faces also join the team with Alistair to engineer my side of the garage and obviously Penrite continuing to back my car which is awesome.
“Penrite have been a big supporter of mine over the years, they’re family to me so I’m looking forward to continuing that great relationship.”
