Reynard was a student himself at Cranfield and has been an active member ever since, helping introduce a Motorsport Engineering and Management MSc to Cranfield back in late 1999. Reynard has been on the Cranfield advisory board from the start, where he was  number two to Sir Jackie Stewart OBE.

On accepting his Honorary Doctorate from Cranfield University, Adrian Reynard stressed the need for motorsport engineers to be creative, to develop innovative solutions with reference to cost, and time and to keep abreast of the continuously changing technologies and the opportunities these present.
