Derek Bell has won Le Mans a remarkable five times, four of those at the wheel of a Porsche. This year the 78 year-old Briton would have been starting the race as Grand Marshall, but instead finds himself at home in Florida, itching to return to his old hunting grounds. Brand ambassador and LMP1 ace Mark Webber was a pivotal figure in the 919 Hybrid programme that culminated in three back-to-back victories for Porsche at Le Mans. After a successful career in Formula One, Webber brought an exceptional breadth of experience and commitment to Porsche’s fledgling prototype campaign, narrowly missing out on overall victory at Le Mans on two occasions.
New Land Rover Discovery Product Film
The Discovery Sport of the 2021 year reaches a new dimension in terms of the digital experience. Because the equipment of the series now includes the ultra-modern Pivi-Infotainment system, which was first seen in the new Land Rover Defender. Pivi is ready for use right from the start - its own battery and a separate data plan ensure immediate operation, and there is almost no need to boot the system. The integrated data connection enables free software updates "over-the-air" at any time, whereby the updates can be started at the right time as required. In this way, users of the Discovery Sport always have the latest data for maps, apps or the vehicle system - without having to visit the workshop. The backbone of the infotainment system is a new, high-performance electronic vehicle architecture. In Discovery Sport there is infotainment either as a Pivi version or - from the Discovery Sport S - as an even more extensive Pivi Pro.
