    Background: SILVERSTONE, UK

    Britain's Derek Bell with his co-driver Stefan Bellof of West Germany won the second round of the World's Endurance Championships in Silverstone on May 8, in a Rothmans-Porsche. As the 1000-kilometres race (621 miles) started in very wet conditions, the early leader was the Lancia Ferrari driven by Formula-One drivers Michele Alboreto and Riccardo Patrese of Italy, followed by Australian Alan Jones, making his debut in this type of racing. Alan Jones soon passed the Lancia, but his wet-weather tyres slowed him down when the course dried out, Derek Bell took the lead, followed closely by Bob Wollek of France in a Marlboro-Porsche. Alboreto was forced to retire with an overheated engine and Jackie Ickx's Porsche was driven into the catch-fences by his co-driver Jochen Mass from West Germany. Despite mounting pressure from Wollek, Derek Bell won the 212-lap race, 51 seconds ahead of Wollek, who still leads the World Championship.
