An evening with Derek Bell

31/5/2018

On Wednesday 16 May, Porsche Centre Reading played host to the UK launch of Derek Bell’s new book ‘Derek Bell – All my Porsche Races’.

As one of motorsport’s best-known and best-loved ambassadors, the event was a fascinating insight to Derek’s illustrious career with Porsche. As a sportscar racer at the highest level, his record is one of the most accomplished of all time. Derek's latest publication looks at every race Bell drove for Porsche and includes revealing comments from the man himself. Light is cast on Bell’s most prestigious victories with Porsche, including four of his five in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, three in the Daytona 24 Hours and two in the World Sportscar Championship.

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion and ITV commentator Tim Harvey compèred the evening with the two delving into some key moments from Derek’s career and the Porsche cars he raced, from the fearsome 917 to the iconic 956, 962, and 911.

Guests also had the opportunity to question Derek on all things Porsche and motorsport with a Q&A session and book signing. Complimentary canapés and refreshments were served throughout the night courtesy of Malmaison, who we were delighted to have on board supporting the event.

Sean Wilson, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Reading, said: “The evening with Derek was a must-see for Porsche and motorsport fanatics. Tim and Derek are two true greats and gents of the sport. Our guests had a fantastic time.”
