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).

In no particular order for services rendered to motorsport.

Flabio Briatore


Piquet Jnr

A special mention for Steve Sutcliffe managing to blag a run in a F1 car - nominated for good blagging efforts in the field of the freebie while making it look like a 'serious piece of journalism'.

Driven this week

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
