    1983 956 Le Mans: Derek Bell doing 400kmh!!!

    this is a classic one I thought I should share

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2842136813668496725&q=porsche+956

    Merry Christmas everyone and happy new year!

    Re: 1983 956 Le Mans: Derek Bell doing 400kmh!!!

    Thanks, very interesting to see this circuit now since I was there last year. It has changed quite a bit (trees are taller). There won't be that high speed anymore thanks to the Chicane in the straight. I spoke to Derek about this and he said most of the time it was fine but did get quite hairy out there once in a while...night driving when tired caused side effects(seeing things that are not there). He has lots of stories. Quite the gentleman.

    Thanks for posting the video.

    I must have been playing too much Gran Turismo, I knew exactly what Derek Bell was going to do next... The realism of this game is quite excellent.

    Wonderful! Absolutely Wonderful! You don't realize how much the chicanes have taken out of the spirit of Lemans until you have seen this.

    Re: 1983 956 Le Mans: Derek Bell doing 400kmh!!!

    I was going to say the same thing about Gran Turismo.

    wow...the best...kinda puts into proper perspective all the videos u see on utube of "look at me driving my car really fast", on the freeway or worse.
