Reynard has been on the Cranfield advisory board from the start, where he was  number two to Sir Jackie Stewart OBE.

Reynard now chairs this steering committee that focuses on motorsport at Cranfield University, making an annual award for the best thesis project and continues to support teaching and projects, as well as help Cranfield Motorsport MSc students realise their career ambitions.

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.
