About

The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame exists to honour and recognize the efforts, achievements and contributions that Canadians have made in the realm of Canadian Motorsports.

The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame was officially opened in 1993, and began inducting honourable members in that year. The first set of inductee recognition panels was displayed in a special section at the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame at the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. The space permitted the display of only one vehicle. This first vehicle was the 1983 March Indycar of Jacques Villeneuve (Sr.) There soon was a need for a larger facility and the search began for a new home of what was to be a Motorsport museum.

In November of 1997, the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame moved to 777 Bay Street. The 7,500 square foot space offered more room and a better display environment for the museum’s exhibits and soon attracted a steady stream of motorsports enthusiasts.

From 2001 the CMHF moved through several temporary locations before deciding to focus on the original mission of honouring and recognizing Canadian contribution to the world of Motorsport.

The Hall now has a permanent home—accessible to all—on the internet. We will continue to build out this site to showcase truly Canadian stories in motorsport both within Canada and beyond our borders.
