Legendary racecar driver Derek Bell is reunited with the first race car he drove, the 1970 Ferrari 512M. Blackbird Automotive shot the event as part of their ‘FIRST DANCE’ series. Bell won the Le Mans 24 hours race five times, the Daytona 24 three times, and the World Sportscar Championships two times. That makes the Middlesex native the most successful UK racer of all time, having won almost every title there was to win in a career that spanned over 20 years. The 1970 Ferrari 512M defined his following steps before he became notable as a driver for McLaren and Porsche.
