Derek Bell nominated for Motorsport Magazine Hall of Fame
The inaugural Motor Sport Hall of Fame first took place in February 2010. Its eight founding members – Tazio Nuvolari, Enzo Ferrari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna, and Michael Schumacher – were adopted, and then, for the inaugural ceremony, Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx, Tony Brooks and Ron Dennis were inducted. Each year four more racing luminaries are inducted to the Motor Sport Magazine Hall of Fame.
This year ceremony will take place on Tuesday 31 May 2016 at the Royal Automobile Club, Woodcote Park, where five awards will be presented representing Formula 1, sports car racing, motorcycling, rallying and US motor sport. For the first time ever Motor Sport readers can help decide which great figures from the past and present join the 29 current members of the illustrious Hall of Fame.
Derek Bell has been shortlisted in the Sports car category; other contenders include: Woolf Barnato, Vic Elford, Olivier Gendebien, Reinhold Joest, Klaus Ludwig, Allan McNish, Henri Pescarolo, Brian Redman, Pedro Rodriguez, Jean Rondeau and John Wyer.
