In Auto 66, Features, Roads, Sidecars

CARL Bell will climb back inside the famous Bell Racing outfit when he takes part in a tribute lap to his late dad Ian at Oliver’s Mount.

The Bedlington chair-man has confirmed his attendance at the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup over the weekend September 24 and 25 when he will parade the iconic number seven outfit.

Ian Bell, who sadly lost his life at this year’s Isle of Man TT, was a veritable veteran of the Scarborough track and has won there dozens of times throughout his successful career.

Loved and respected by fellow racers and fans alike, his death has left a massive hole in the sport, particularly among the northern contingent of riders, most of whom he had helped in some way over the years.

The lap at Oliver’s Mount will give fans a chance to pay their respects to a rider who would have certainly been among the dominant figures across this weekend, which was always one of his favourite events.

Since Ian’s death, Carl has been pursuing his interest in solo racing, and recently raced at East Fortune.

This weekend, however, he will be climbing back into the chair as David Lillie drives the outfit during the parade.
