Riley & Scott splits with Reynard
Now Reynard says that after looking at the relationship both companies have agreed to go their separate way. Adrian Reynard admitted that "the true potential of Riley & Scott and its expertise within its marketplace is not being realized through the association with us".
Reynard added that his company needs to put all its efforts into its own core markets of CART and Formula Nippon.
There is obviously more to the story than meets the eye as it makes little sense for Reynard to have let go of Riley & Scott because the firm wanted to expand. The obvious conclusion is that Bob Riley and Mark Scott decided to buy back the company they started and Reynard was happy to take the money.
