New Format for Hall of Fame Inductions
Tuesday 10 March, 2020
There will be a new format during this year's Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame.
The Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame, presented by Famous Insurance, has announced a new format for its 2020 inductions.
With the opening of a ‘physical’ Hall of Fame at the new Motorsport Australia House in Melbourne, it has been decided to unveil the Hall of Fame’s newest inductees at a special function to be held at the Canterbury Rd building later this year.
Previously, the event had been held as part of the busy Grand Prix weekend in Melbourne.
Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame Chairman Garry Connelly said more details about the 2020 induction ceremony would be announced soon, with a number of significant motorsport contributions set to be recognised.
“Since 2016, we’ve celebrated the induction of 84 Hall of Fame members who have contributed to motorsport in various ways, that includes many talented competitors and also those who work in various roles across our great sport,” Connelly said.
“With the construction of a physical Hall of Fame at Motorsport Australia House in Melbourne, we now have a place where these inductees can be celebrated together, with both photo and video representation.
“In 2020, we believe welcoming our newest inductees at the Hall of Fame will ensure the rich history of our sport and the existing Hall of Fame members are rightly acknowledged.”
Motorsport Australia House and the Hall of Fame were officially opened late last year by Hall of Fame legend and former Formula 1 World Champion Alan Jones.
The date for the 2020 induction will be announced later this year.
