FIA plans to launch the official motorsport Hall of Fame following the example of other sports in order to honor the famous names from the past and present.
Although motorsport has a rich history of more than a century (F1 alone is 67 years old), the FIA has not yet evaluated the idea, let alone launched it which is common in many other sports.
But FIA president Jean Todt revealed that by the end of the year FIA will open two Hall of Fames, one in Paris and one in Geneva.
“In December we will open FIA Hall of Fame,” said Todt.
“It’s something we’re working on for two to three years.”
“We will have one Hall of Fame in Paris and one in Geneva, but when you see some of the people who will be represented, some of which are unfortunately passed away, when you see the images, it is fascinating.”
It is not yet known whether the Hall of Fame will be available to the public, according to Autosport.
