Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame has four new inductees

The Motorsport Australia National Awards will take place on April 23

Four new additions are set to be inducted into the Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame next month.

It comes with confirmation that the Motorsport Australia National Awards will take place on April 23 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

It will be the first rendition of the gala dinner since the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to honor the country’s best in person, so we’re delighted to be able to confirm a date for the awards,” said Eugene Arocca, CEO of Motorsport Australia.

“Although the event in April is a bit later than in previous years, it will take place just two weeks after Formula 1’s Heineken Australian Grand Prix, making it a busy month for motorsport – something who we have missed over the past two years.

“The National Awards, presented by our friends at Shannons Insurance, are a fantastic way to recognize the many people who contribute to the sport both on and off the track, so it’s great that we can do this in a COVID safe way. this year.

“In addition, the induction of four people into the Hall of Fame will make the evening a great celebration of our sport.”

Garry Connelly, Chairman of the Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame, added: “We look forward to welcoming four new inductees to the Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame who have contributed so much to the sport we all love.

“Since its inception in 2016, the Australian Motor Sport Hall of Fame has celebrated and applauded a number of great names in the sport and we look forward to highlighting and sharing the successes of new members in April with the Motorsport Australia National Awards. ”
