On 31st May, our customer MotorSport, hosted their annual event, Hall of Fame at the Royal Automobile Club’s Woodcote Park country estate. The prestigious event recognises and celebrates the great personalities in motor sport. We were excited to attend the event as MotorSport’s print partner and support them on the day.
The event started in the afternoon with a panel discussion on ‘The Great Rivals’ with nine-time Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen, two-time Le Mans class winner Darren Turner, former F1 driver and team owner Jackie Oliver, five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell, Isle of Man TT winner and Motor Sport writer Mat Oxley and editor Damien Smith.
The evening event was a real celebration of motor sport and for the first time the inductees were decided by the public. After over 25,000 votes were placed, the new members included Sid Watkins (Formula 1), Dan Gurney (US racing), Valentino Rossi (motorcycles), Sébastien Loeb (rally) and Derek Bell (sports cars).
