Vale: George Reynolds
The motorsport world is mourning the loss of veteran race and rally driver, George Reynolds, who became a motorsport legend due to his outstanding performances in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
Reynolds was best remembered for his exploits in events such as the 1968 London to Sydney Marathon in which he competed in a Monaro as part of the Sydney Daily Telegraph Team, with David McKay and Dave Little, as well as numerous Ampol and Mobilgas Round Australia Trials over the years.
Not only was he a competitive driver in loose surface events, he was also a winner on the race track, winning the 1964 Armstrong 500 (later to become the Bathurst 1000) with Bob Jane in a Ford Cortina.
In more recent times he could be seen at the wheel of numerous Volkswagen Beetles in Australian trial and rally events including Olde BP Rallies and the like.
Reynolds is survived by his second wife Sophia and daughter Miesja. George also has three other children (Graeme, Jeanne and Greg) from his first marriage.
