This design is a replica of the lap notes Derek Bell wrote whilst practicing for 1971 Le Mans 24 hours in his Gulf Porsche 917K. We have blended the notes with the traditional Guld colours to make an amazing piece of artwork.

Derek Bell is one of the five most successful drivers at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He has five wins to his name (1975, 1981, 1982, 1986 and 1987), on a par with Emanuele Pirro (Grand Marshal at the 2020 race) and Frank Biela. On the Le Mans winners list, he is preceded only by Tom Kristensen (nine victories) and Jacky Ickx, who counts six victories and with whom Bell won three times.

The Ferrari 512 and the Porsche 917 were pitted against one another in the early 1970s. Derek Bell made his 24 Hours of Le Mans debut in 1970 at the wheel of a Ferrari 512 S with Ferrari SEFAC and Swedish teammate Ronnie Peterson. Unfortunately, they failed to make it to the chequered flag. The following year, Bell teamed up with Jo Siffert to drive a Porsche 917 LH for John Wyer Automotive Engineering but had to pull out without going the full distance.
