21 July 2017

Cranfield University has awarded British designer Adrian Reynard with an Honorary Doctorate for his services to motorsport at the University.

Reynard, now joins the ranks of Sir Jackie Stewart, David Richards and Nick Fry who have all received Honorary Doctorate from Cranfield University.

The 66 year-old has been active in the motorsport industry since building his first race car in 1973 and then going on to create racing car manufacturer Reynard Motorsport. 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.

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.
