TORONTO, ON – The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame (CMHF) announced today that nominations have opened to select the 2019 inductees.

The CMHF honours and recognizes achievements of individuals and institutions that have made outstanding contributions to Canadian motorsport as drivers, owners, team members, motorsport builders, and significant contributors, as well as those who have distinguished themselves in a new Media category.

“I look forward to seeing the nominations for this year. I do not envy the selection committee which always has difficult choices to make,” said CMHF Chairman 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 motorsport in Canada, whether behind the wheel, from the owner’s box, on a timing stand, turning a wrench, or holding a microphone.”

As a general rule, inductees must be retired from competition for at least three years or have been involved in motorsport for at least 25 years.

Made up of experts from the motorsport community, the CMHF Nomination Committee will select the inductees for 2019.

Successful candidates will be honoured in an induction ceremony that takes place during the Canadian International AutoShow, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in February 2020.

Since it inducted its first members in 1993, the CMHF has honoured more than 200 men, women and companies, who were recognized for their accomplishments and contributions to Canadian motorsports.
