David Reynolds (born 3 July 1985 in Albury, New South Wales) is an Australian racing driver.


Twice champion

Reynolds stepped into a national series campaign in the 2003 Australian Formula Ford Championship, finishing outside the top ten at series end. For 2004 Reynolds joined the Sonic Motor Racing Services for what would be four years and bring two national championships. First came victory in the 2004 Australian Formula Ford Championship. Stepping away from open wheelers Reynolds became part of Team Sonic expansion into Carrera Cup Australia. Finishing fifth in his first season, Reynolds stepped into third as the series transitioned from the Porsche 996 to the Porsche 997 in the 2006 season. After a season long battle with Alex Davison and Craig Baird, Reynolds claimed the 2007 title.

V8 Supercar

Reynolds 2007 form in Carrera Cup made him a natural fit for an endurance race co-driver slot and was pencilled in to drive with the HSV Dealer Team, until Paul Radisich became available after he left Team Kiwi Racing and Reynolds was traded into a co-drive with Cameron McConville at Paul Weel Racing but the team failed to finish the Sandown 500 and Bathurst ended before the race start as the engine failed on the warm-up lap.

With Team Sonic not yet ready to step into the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series, Reynolds needed a new team for 2008. He found one in 2007 Fujitsu Series Champions, Tony D'Alberto Racing, finishing fourth in his first season. The 2008 enduros were a repeat of 2007 however. Again a DNF co-driving with Paul Dumbrell at the Phillip Island 500 preceded another Bathurst 1000 on the sidelines after his gave up his seat in Dumbrell's car for Rick Kelly after Radisich's career-ending crash in Kelly's car during practice left Kelly without a car to race.

In 2009, Reynolds drove for Walkinshaw Racing alongside Paul Dumbrell. He put on some strong performances throughout the year, but was generally struck with bad luck.
