Following the inaugural Motor Sport Hall of Fame event in early 2010, the prestigious awards evening will return to the Roundhouse in Camden, London, on Tuesday 15 February 2011. Celebrating and honouring the achievements of motor racing’s greatest luminaries, the event brings together a host of personalities from the sport.
The second annual Hall of Fame event, in association with TAG Heuer, takes place less than four weeks ahead of the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship, starting in March.
Already confirmed to attend the 2011 Hall of Fame, are two of Motor Sport Magazine’s existing Hall of Fame inductees – Sir Stirling Moss OBE and one of Britain’s most respected Grand Prix drivers, Tony Brooks.
Hosted by BBC Sport’s Jake Humphrey, the evening will be a gathering of names and faces, with celebrity guests joining legends from the world of motor racing, making it a highly memorable occasion for the next inductees due to be announced on the night.
Sir Stirling Moss explains what the Hall of Fame means to him, “I started reading Motor Sport avidly in 1947, or thereabouts, and I haven’t missed an issue since then. It’s an exceptionally good magazine. To be invited to the opening Motor Sport Hall of Fame event earlier this year, where I was awarded a founding membership, was an absolute delight for me. I can’t wait to attend again in 2011 and find out who the next inductees will be.”
Talking about the forthcoming awards, Motor Sport Magazine’s editor, Damien Smith, said, “The inaugural Motor Sport Hall of Fame event was a huge success. The evening has become a real highlight on the motor racing social calendar. Motor Sport Magazine is proud to present racing legends, which are an inspiration to our readers, with an accolade which pays tribute to their significant contributions to the sport.”
