Bell Tests Porsche 962 at Donington

Derek Bell took to the wheel of the Porsche 962 he will share with Mark Sumpter in the Group C race at the Le Mans 24-Hours next month at a damp Donington Park yesterday, May 29th. The Porsche is an ex-Joest racing car (chassis 962-011) with the distinctive centre-post rear wing seen on the more developed privateer 962s towards the end of the car's front line World Endurance Championship career, the 962 featuring a variety of Joest tweaks. Derek and Mark have shared the car before, leading the Group C race at the 2007 Silverstone Classic before having to retire due to damage to the front splitter after contact with another car.
