Porsche 917 and 962 to star at Lancaster Insurance Classic and Supercars Show - Sherborne Castle 2019
Wednesday June 26, 2019
Derek Bell is to be reunited with the iconic Le Mans winning 917 and 962 Porsches at the Lancaster Insurance Classic and Supercars Show. Both will take pride of place in the show’s marque feature, with Lancaster Insurance kindly helping with the insurance for the 917.
Featuring in the Porsche marque feature, the cars will sit amongst an historic line up including race and road cars from 356 model to the present day. Over 100 Porsches will be in attendance from UK and Germany, with many joining in the various tours and parades and Derek Bell and Lee Sibley will be on hand to provide expert commentary.
Andrew Evanson, Senior Operations Manager at Lancaster Insurance, comments: “We’re thrilled to have been able to help cover the insurance for the 917, bringing together Derek with this extraordinary model at the show. Alongside the 962, it will be an incredible moment to see him reunited with both cars.”
Features manager Keith McGee says: "I am indebted to the owners and National Motor Museum Beaulieu for providing these show stopping Porsches for our special display. Both cars have been raced by our celebrity guest Derek Bell who will lead the Porsche car parade at the show.”
