Welcome to the Hall of Fame

Things are changing in 2016, as for the first time you can have your say on who is inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame. Plus, you could join us for the evening next year.

The inaugural Motor Sport Hall of Fame evening took place in February 2010. In the US it has ever been the tradition to choose four inductees to a Hall of Fame each year and, with a sport as rich in heritage as motor racing, we hardly lack for choice. Eight founding members – Tazio Nuvolari, Enzo Ferrari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher – were adopted, and then, for the inaugural ceremony, we chose Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx, Tony Brooks and Ron Dennis.

From the beginning we were set on the idea that the Hall of Fame evening, while paying due respect to our sport’s revered personalities, should be an informal affair. Rather, the aim was to create the atmosphere of a club, where friends can meet for a glass or two of wine, where ties are optional.

To see the list of Motor Sport Hall of Fame members, visit the founding members page and the inductees page.
