TORONTO, ON – The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame (CMHF) announced today that nominations are now being accepted, as part of the process to select the 2021 class of inductees. They will be accepted through until July 30. The CMHF honours and recognizes the achievements of individuals and institutions that have made outstanding contributions to Canadian motorsport as drivers, owners, team members, motorsport builders, sponsors and significant contributors as well as those who have distinguished themselves in the new Media category.
“I look forward to seeing the nominations for this year. I do not envy the Independent Selection Committee which always had difficult choices to make,” said CMHF Chair Dr. Hugh Scully. “I urge everyone involved in motorsport – from team owners to drivers to fans – to nominate anyone who you feel has made a major contribution to racing in Canada, whether behind the wheel, from the owner’s box, on a timing stand, turning a wrench, or holding a microphone.”
Inductees must be retired from competition for at least three years, or if still active, have been involved in motorsport for at least 25 years. Information about the nomination process, submission requirements and an online submission form are online at www.CMHF.ca.
Comprised of experts from the motorsport community, the CMHF Independent Selection Committee will review the nominations, evaluate the nominees and submit grade point scores to the CMHF Board, which will select the new inductees based on those scores. At that stage, the names of the nominees won’t be associated with the scores.
Subsequently, the names of the successful nominees will be revealed to the Board. The Chair of the Board will then personally contact each of the successful nominees and their nominators – prior to the public release of the names of the new members to be inducted.
The successful candidates will be honoured in an induction ceremony in February 2022.
Since inducting its first members in 1993, the CMHF has honoured more than 220 men, women and companies, who were recognized for their accomplishments and contributions to Canadian motorsport.
