Nominate Your Motorsports Hero for the MMHF

PETITCODIAC, NB (January 16, 2011) – The Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame (MMHF) nomination process for the Class of 2012 is underway. If you know someone who deserves to be inducted for their contribution to Maritime motorsports then the first step is to nominate them – a simple and convenient procedure using the newly redesigned nomination form.

The MMHF was formed to celebrate and recognize the tremendous motorsports history in the Maritime Provinces of Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island). Since then more than 70 honoured members have been enshrined in the hallowed hall.

Eligible nominees are those persons and/or entities that have made a significant contribution to motorsports either as a participant or in growing the sport in the Maritimes. All genres of motorsports are included in the MMHF, with induction categories including: Competitor (drivers/riders), Recreational (snowmobile, motorcycle, ATV), Restoration and Specialties (any motorized vehicle), Motorsport Builders (officials, promoters, sponsors, media, and clubs), and Teams.

Anyone can participate in the nomination process so long as they complete the form in its entirety. Nominations received by April 1 will be considered for the current year by a 10-member panel. The selection process will be complete by September 15 when both the nominator and new inductees will be notified. If a nominee is not selected then the nomination will be held over for consideration the next year. Incomplete nominations will be returned without consideration.

The Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame will celebrate its newest honourees and their accomplishments at a gala ceremony to be held November 17 at the Ramada Crystal Palace in Moncton.

The 2012 nomination form is available here.
