Two veterans on the move in latest Supercars silly season developments

The game of musical chairs this Repco Supercar Championship season continues as two veterans are on the search for seats next year.

Ahead of an expected move to Team 18 for 2024, Grove Racing confirmed David Reynolds will depart the squad at the end of this season.

Reynolds joined the squad when it was known as Kelly Grove Racing in 2021 from Erebus Motorsport where he was a Bathurst winner and title contender.

A decade earlier, Reynolds was previously been a part of Kelly Racing before moving to Tickford Racing in controversial circumstances. He made the move to Erebus Motorsport when it had switched form Mercedes to Holden and was a piece of its rise through the field.

Signing a 10-year deal with Erebus in 2019, the relationship between team and driver broke down leading to Reynolds jumping ship in 2021.

In a statement, Grove Racing stated: “Penrite Racing will not be renewing David Reynolds’ contract for 2024.

“We wish Dave the best in his future endeavours.”

Reynolds is heavily linked to taking Scott Pye’s drive at Team 18, while Triple Eight co-driver is favourite to join Grove Racing.

Despite an up turn of form at the OTR SuperSprint, Nick Percat will finish with Walkinshaw Andretti United at the end of the season.

Although a celebrated signing two years ago, Percat has failed to emulate the form he demonstrated at Brad Jones Racing and is on the hunt for a new ride in 2024.

“Both parties are fully committed to finishing the 2023 Championship in the strongest possible manner, with four rounds remaining,” a team statement said.

“The entire team want to thank Nick for his dedication, hard work and commitment over the past two seasons, with more to come in 2023.

“The driver of Car 2 for 2024 will be announced in due course.”

Percat highlighted last year’s dream 1-2 for the team in Adelaide as his favourite moment during his tenure.

“My time with the WAU family has come to an end and I wish we could have had the results we both wanted and expected,” said Percat.

“I have loved my time working alongside Chaz and it’s cool to say we will be lifelong friends. To the team, thank you for the tireless effort and hours spent trying to unlock the speed from Car No. 2.

“Adelaide 500 is something I’ll never forget. To the WAU fans, you have been truly amazing, the open arms you had for me rejoining was special and the endless support has been the best. Looking forward to finishing the year with a bang.”

Ryan Walkinshaw paid credit and thanked Percat for his efforts.

“We want to thank Nick for being a big part of our team for the past two seasons, but also his entire time with us over the journey.

“Of course, we both hoped to achieve more together, but with four rounds remaining this year, including the Bathurst 1000, Sandown 500 and Adelaide 500, we are all pushing to finish on a high.

“Everyone here wishes him all the best for the future.”

Super2 driver Ryan Wood appears in line to replace Percat completing a rapid rise up the ranks.
