We are delighted to announce that Porsche Centre Reading will host an exclusive ticket only evening with Derek Bell.
The event will take place on Wednesday 16 May and will feature a book signing for Derek’s book ‘Derek Bell – All my Porsche Races’.
Derek Bell is one of motorsport’s best-known and best-loved ambassadors. As a sportscar racer at the highest level, his record is one of the most accomplished of all time and intrinsically linked with Porsche. Derek's latest publication looks at every race Bell drove for Porsche, in detail and includes revealing comments from the man himself. Light is cast on Bell’s most prestigious victories with Porsche - four of his five in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, three in the Daytona 24 Hours, two in the World Sportscar Championship - and many more besides.
Promoting his book at our Centre, we look forward to hearing about Derek’s tales and the Porsche cars he raced, from the fearsome 917 to the iconic 956, 962, and 911.
Guests will have the opportunity to question Derek on all things Porsche and motorsport with a Q&A session and book signing. Familiar faces from motorsport and the Porsche family will also be in attendance, including former Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion and ITV commentator Tim Harvey. Complimentary canapés and refreshments will be provided courtesy of Malmaison, who we are delighted to have on board supporting our event.
Sean Wilson, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Reading, said: “The evening with Derek is a must-see for Porsche and motorsport fanatics. I am looking forward to hearing some fascinating tales of his amazing career.”

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
