Derek Bell is a legendary motor racing driver who is regarded as one of the greatest sports car and endurance racing drivers of his era. He is a five-time Le Mans winner, three-time Daytona 24 winner and two-time World Sports Car Champion. His career spans the Ferrari 512 and Porsche 917, Gulf-Mirage era, Renault’s turbo effort at Le Mans, Porsche 936 and 962, the Kremer Porsche K8, Ferrari 333 SP and McLaren F1 which earned him yet another Le Mans podium with his son Justin in 1995. Splitting his time between homes in the United Kingdom and the United States, you will find Derek at the world’s major automotive and motor sports events. In 2012 Derek was inducted in to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and in 2013 inducted in to the Le Mans 24 Hours Drivers Hall of Fame.
