Bell to be star attraction at fast-growing Belgian classic festival


Five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell is to drive a rather more stately 1957 Bentley Continental S1 in the Zoute Rally that takes place in Knokke Het Zoute, Belgium from 11-12 October. 

This year marks the fourth running of the Zoute Grand Prix, which consists of five different elements: Top Marques, a Bonhams sale, the rally, a concours and a GT tour.

It has grown from just 5000 visitors in 2010 to 80,000-plus last year with the rally boasting some 160 pre-1965 cars. 

Star lot at the inaugural Bonhams auction at Zoute is expected to be a 1954 Ferrari 250 Europa 'prototype' with a €750-950,000 estimate.
