Congratulations to Derek Bell


derek-bell-70-1
Today, 31 October, famous racing driver Derek Bell celebrates his 70th birthday. He began his racing career with Lotus in 1964. In Formula 1 he then took his place on the starting grid for Ferrari in 1969. In the 1971 season he drove the Porsche 917 and 908/03 racing cars for the Porsche-Gulf team, forming a successful driver duo with Jo Siffert. This was followed by appearances in the Porsche 934 and 935 in 1976 and 1977 before Derek Bell took his place on the Le Mans starting grid as a works driver in the 924 Carrera GT. In 1981, together with Jacky Ickx in the Porsche 936/81 Spyder, he won the first of his total of four Le Mans overall victories in a Porsche. 1982 saw the beginning of the Group C era with the Porsche 956 during which time Bell made his mark as one of the most successful endurance drivers of all time. Hear and see him doing a round of the Nürburgring (YouTube). To this very day he can be seen on Britain’s roads driving a 1981 vintage Porsche 924 Carrera GTS.
