ATN Power 50-Richard Cregan

ATN Power 50-Richard Cregan

Richard Cregan must be excited and full of trepidation in equal measure right now. He heads the organisation responsible for building and running Yas Marina Circuit, home of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Cregan is a man with motor racing in his blood. He joined Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management from Toyota Motorsport, which he joined in 1984. Over more than two decades, he took on many roles within the team including rally mechanic, workshop manager and operations manager for Toyota’s title-winning rally programme and the Le Mans 24 hour project.

In 1999, he was closely involved in the creation of Toyota’s F1 team and went on to become general manager of F1 operations in 2001. In 2004, he became team manager, responsible for the smooth operation of the team and relations with F1’s governing body.
