Singapore, 4th April 2001....
Team Bentley has announced today that its newest recruit is five times Le Mans
winner Derek Bell. Derek will work as a consultant to the team between now and
the race in June, giving the benefit of his vast experience of not only the
but, crucially, in preparing for it too. Come the race weekend, he will be on
hand throughout the 24 hours to lend strategic and tactical assistance. He will
also perform a wider and on-going role for Bentley Motors in the evaluation of
its forthcoming road cars.
I can scarcely believe its happening, said a clearly emotional Bell. In the
last 30 years of my career Ive worked with so many car companies, but have had
hardly any involvement with British manufacturers; now I find myself not only
working for Bentley but also helping out with their return to Le Mans. We have
both won this race five times and even though I will not be driving I cannot
think of a happier way for me to go back to Le Mans. It is truly a job-
description from heaven.
