Hello to you all and many thanks for having me here on eBay Motors as a Blog contributor.
So, to make sure you know why I am here, let me tell you a bit about myself.
The world of cars and motor racing has been my life since birth. My father is Derek Bell who (I am very proud to say) was one of the most successful race drivers of his generation, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours five times and the World Sports Car Championship twice. So yes, he is quite a hero to everyone including me!
I started out racing at 17 years old and pretty much haven’t looked back since. I also won Le Mans and the FIA GT2 World Championship for Dodge in the Viper as well as many other races in a variety of cars.
However, the world of entertainment and media has always shouted my name and so about four years ago I got the opportunity to get on board with Speed and started commentating on racing and other fun shows. Currently on Speed I co-host the Barrett Jackson Car Auctions as well as several of the biggest sport scar races and most recently we premiered a very popular new series called “Shut up and Drive” with Townsend, Bell, and myself.
However, my passion and focus is always The Worlds Fastest Car Show which launched last year on eBay Motors to great reviews by the car industry, media, and fans.
So in partnership with my Director Nicolai Iuul, we are so excited to see Season Two air on eBay Motors and we hope you like it as much as we do.
We love cars, the people that own them and the culture surrounding them. Sounds pretty much like the folks at eBay Motors as well.
