Derek Bell. Motor sport legend. He began his career in 1964 in a Lotus Seven in Great Britain, a year after changed to British Formula 3 and then in 1968 moved on to the European Formula 2 Championships. It was later an offer from Ferrari that brought him to the Formula 1. His real love, though, was reserved for sports car racing! In 1970, he debuted in a Ferrari 512 A at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A year later, he drove with Jo Siffert in the legendary Gulf Porsche 917. It was with Jacky Ickx in a GULF GR8, when he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time. Four other overall victories followed on the Sarthe – all with Porsche! Whether in the 934, 935 or the 936 or later in the eighties with the Group C meteors 956 and 962, Derek’s skills behind the wheel of a Porsche cemented his place as one of the all-time best sports car drivers. His 26 record starts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans are just the icing on the cake. GRANDPRIX ORIGINALS is pleased to announce and present the exclusive Derek Bell Signature collection – a small yet fine gentlemen’s driving collection that was tailor-made for and designed together with Derek that will be available this fall only at GRANDPRIX ORIGINALS online.
