Whitaker goes to Bahrain

Martin Whitaker, who until last year was the head of Ford's European motorsport programmes has been named as the new General Manager of the Bahrain International Circuit. Whitaker was involved in this year's race, working closely with KHP Consulting, which did most of the promotional work, in the run-up to the event.

Whitaker has been through a string of jobs since quitting journalism, including periods with the MSA in Brittain, McLaren, FOM, the FIA and Ford. He left Ford unexpectedly last year.
