Jordan Reynolds Cadet Class Champion and Mini Tempest Winnner
Proud sponsors Blue Networks are pleased to announce that British Rally Championship Cadet Class champion Jordan Reynolds will graduate into the Junior BRC next season, signing up with new team EDSL Sport.
Welshman Reynolds topped the Cadet class on the Pirelli International Rally to open the season and second place on Wales Rally GB was enough to secure the title which awards him free entries to the 2018 BRC rallies.
Reynolds drove an R2T with EDSL, setup by Junior BRC driver Alex Waterman and his dad, Pat, in the team’s open test session at Walters Arena last month.
“We’ve known about Alex and people who now work within the team in the last few years, the people are all very good and very passionate about rallying,” said Reynolds of the new squad.
“The competition is very close between the top boys in the JBRC and it would be great to be a part of that. But in my eyes it would be nice to get a few podiums throughout the year, we’ll review it mid-way through the season and see where we’re at.”
Reynolds has driven a Fiesta R2 in the Cadets this year, which is the same chassis but features a naturally-aspirated 1600cc engine, whereas the R2T uses a one-litre turbo. “It’s a step up in power and torque because it’s a turbo. It’s a different animal,” added Reynolds.
“The chassis is the same, but it is about adapting the driving style with the turbo.”
Reynolds drove the new car in competition for the first time on the Mini Tempest Deepcut Rally on December 29 and beat the rest of the field to win the event. What a great start in the new car, well done Jordan and here’s to more success in 2019…
