The prestigious Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame (CMHF) will accept nominations from the public for it’s 2020 class of inductees….

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, 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, if still active, have been involved in motorsport for at least 25 years. Information about the nomination process and submission requirements are available at

Made up of experts from the motorsport community, the CMHF Nomination Committee will select the inductees for 2020.

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 2021.

Since it inducted 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 motorsports.
