15 Feb. Motor Sport Magazine Hall of Fame in association with TAG Heuer
TAG Heuer is proud to sponsor the Motor Sport's Hall of Fame as the first celebration of TAG Heuer "150 Years of Mastering Speed" in the UK.
The award ceremony celebrates the careers of some of the greatest names in motor racing and also pays tribute to past heroes that made Formula One the global phenomenon it is today.
In recognition of their achievements in the sport Sir Jack Brabham, Sir Frank Williams, Jody Scheckter and Dario Franchitti were the 2011 inductees. Presenting to the third inductee, 1979 Ferrari F1 World Champion Jody Scheckter, the honour was bestowed on the South African racer by the CEO of TAG Heuer, Jean-Christophe Babin and five-time Grand Prix winner John Watson.
