Over the course of his long and hugely successful career, Derek Bell’s name became inextricably linked to Porsche.

Among countless other victories, the British ace won the Le Mans 24 Hours four times for the legendary German marque, the Daytona 24 Hours three times, and he twice claimed the World Sportscar Championship. Derek Bell and renowned motorsport author Richard Heseltine document each and every race that he drove for Porsche, offering a fascinating – and very personal – insight into a golden era for the marque and for sportscar racing in general.

  • The full story of Bell’s career with Porsche, from the fearsome 917 to the iconic 956, 962 and 911
  • A compelling insight into his famous victories at classic races such as Le Mans and Daytona – recounted in his own words
  • A full account of driving alongside fellow heroes such as Stefan Bellof, Jo Siffert, Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx
  • Three decades of racing history covered in detail, from the 1971 Buenos Aires 1000km to the 2000 Daytona 24 Hours
  • Exhaustive research includes almost 200 races from around the world, including the World Sportscar Championship, IMSA and All-Japan Sports-Prototype Championship
  • Illustrated with superb images from the Porsche archive as well as Derek Bell’s own collection

Excellent Book and Service

Wonderful book, giving a great personal insight on the cars and races. Well selected pictures from the events as well. A treat to read at home during the coronavirus lockdown, and well done to Porter Press for contributing from the sale of this book and others to a charity relevant to the virus. Magnificent order and delivery service, from ordering at 22:00 on Tuesday evening to taking delivery by DHL before 08:30 on Friday morning, with regular progress updates from Porter and DHL in between.
