Motor Sport Hall of Fame date announced

February date set for third annual Motor Sport Hall of Fame event
Motor Sport magazine has announced that it's Hall of Fame event for 2012 will take place on 16 February at the Roundhouse in Camden.

The event, to be presented by F1 presenter Jake Humphrey, will see four more famous names inducted into the publication's Hall of Fame as their contributions to the sport are celebrated.

Held in association with TAG Heuer, the third annual Hall of Fame takes place exactly a month ahead of the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship, starting in mid-March.

“It is with a huge amount of honour that we pay tribute to the 'great and the good' of motor racing at our annual awards, giving recognition to their outstanding achievements,” Motor Sport editor Damien Smith said. “Every month we write about the individuals from both the past and present that make motor racing the phenomenal sport that it is. Through this event we try to give something back to them.

“Last year we welcomed the legendary Sir Jack Brabham OBE, Sir Frank Williams CBE, Jody Scheckter and Dario Franchitti into the Hall of Fame and this year we will be adding another four worthy names to our exclusive line-up.”

Motor Sport magazine's Hall of Fame event is attended by both current and former drivers and riders, with familiar faces from the Formula One paddock present this year including Christian Horner, Eddie Jordan, John Watson and Karun Chandhok.

Despite traditionally being an invitation only awards evening for the motor sport fraternity, there are entry tickets available for five lucky winners via Motor Sport online, with the chance to win tickets if you click HERE.

Schumacher and Hamilton should be the first drivers to enter the Hall of Fame while still active for bringing F1 back in the hearts of people, again, with their magnetism.(polarising the public, like Taipan and me as an example) Ciao Enrico Lewis to win in Brazil

Schumacher was a founding inductee of the Hall of Fame in 2010, and if you think Lewis Hamilton should be inducted tell Motor Sport magazine directly via their website and you could even win a pair of tickets to attend the event....
