Author and journalist Richard Heseltine writes with a focus on classic and contemporary performance cars and motor sport history. A former staff member of Classic & Sports Car and Motor Sport magazines, he is the author of books on subjects as diverse as small-series British sports cars, Italian coachbuilding, Ferrari design history, and a biography of racing driver and team principal Graham Warner. Richard lives in Shropshire, where he attends to a coachbuilt Italian classic of his own – a 1966 Moretti 850 Sportiva.
Briton Derek Bell is one of motorsport’s best-known and best-loved ambassadors. As a sports car racer at the highest level, his record is one of the most accomplished of all time. Derek first raced for Porsche in 1971 as part of the famous JWA factory team, first won Le Mans in 1975 with Mirage, then won Le Mans four more times with Porsche between 1981 and 1987. When establishing his reputation he was also a force to be reckoned with in single-seaters, competing in Formula Three, Formula Two, and Grand Prix racing.
