April's Tonbridge Profile features Jonathan Kennard (WW 98-03), who has recently been appointed as the new Heritage Director at Williams.

Jonathan, a professional racing driver, has participated in prestigious races such as the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race, finishing on his first attempt in 2010 and coming in an impressive 11th in class and 15th overall in 2020. He has also raced in the Superleague Formula and Historic Formula One, as well as winning titles in the FPA Winter Trophy in 2003, Formula Palmer Audi in 2004 and achieving pole position in the 2019 Silverstone Classic.

Jonathan is closely tied to Williams Racing, a British institution, having been a Test Driver for the team in 2009.

The position of Heritage Director is a relatively new role, created in 2014 in order to 'manage, preserve, and celebrate Williams Racing’s iconic legacy, which spans almost half a century.'

The role will include managing and maintaining the historic Williams fleet of race cars which contributed to Williams' success, with nine World Constructors Championship titles - the second most in Formula One history after Ferrari.

Jonathan's next exciting project will be working as a stunt driver in Brad Pitt's upcoming F1 film (as of yet untitled), directed by Joseph Kosinski, which is set to be released later this year.

We look forward to keeping up with his career, and our warm congratulations on his recent appointment at Williams.
