Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

The Off Road Hall of Fame was created in 2000, with the first 10 members inducted retrospectively, recognising competitors or officials who are considered to embody the spirit of off roading and to have made a significant contribution to the sport.

Each year, nominations are accepted from the off road community, with a maximum of two selected for induction by a panel appointed by the Australian Off Road Commission (AORCOM).

Members of the Off Road Hall of Fame are presented with a plaque and certificate and listed in the Motorsport Australia Manual.
