An evening with Derek Bell

24/4/2018

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.”
