(Crewe, 12 July 2019) Bentley Motors is today announcing the appointment of #paulwilliams as Director of Motorsport, replacing Brian Gush who will bring a 20-year #Bentley career to a close on 1st August.

Member of the Board for Engineering, Werner Tietz, comments:

“Paul has been an outstanding member of our engineering team for more than 10 years, and as our powertrain expert he is well placed to take on #Bentley Motorsport – where his V8 engine faces its toughest tests. He has a passion for #racing and he will take our motorsport team from strength to strength. On behalf of #Bentley Motors I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the loyal and dedicated service of Brian Gush for the last two decades, and wish him a happy and relaxing retirement.”

Williams joined #Bentley in 2008, and joins #Bentley Motorsport from his current role as Director of Powertrain. During his time in the role, Williams oversaw the design and development of the all-new 6.0-litre W12 engine that powers the Bentayga, Continental GT and new Flying Spur, along with the second generation of Bentley’s 4.0-litre V8 engine that also powers the Continental GT3. His successor in that role will be announced in due course, with Williams retaining his current responsibilities until a replacement is appointed. Williams comments:
