A search has been launched to find the top 100 motorsport heroes of all time
30 September 2009

Autocar's sister magazine Motorsport News has launched a campaign to find your top 100 motorsport heroes.

Back in 1999, the magazine compiled a list of the top 100 motorsport heroes of all time and it has decided to do it again for its Christmas issue on 16 December.

To take part, just devise a list of up to ten heroes, rank them into order and send them to MN at mn.heroes@haymarket.com.

The nominees have to be involved in four-wheeled motorsport, but that’s the only criteria. They can come from any branch or any level of the sport. They don’t even have to be the most successful drivers ever – they just have to be your heroes.

Anyone who takes part will be entered into a draw to win ten Duke Video DVDs of their choice from a selected list, which includes some rallying titles. To be eligible, tell MN why you picked your number one choice in ten words or less (full terms and conditions are in this week’s MN).
