The Canon Hall of Fame.

Post by f1fan12 on Mon Aug 08, 2011 3:28 pm

We may not know all the history behind the Canon Leagues but we do know quite a bit, So every year we are going to induct 10 members of different leagues here. Heres how it works. You guys submit people who you think are the best drivers, promoters, team owners in the history of, TMMC ARLA, CRL, RROL, VSCC, ASCC. Also drivers don't need to be retired. So submit who you think should be in the EFR hall of Fame and why they should be inducted. Then we will vote on 10 to go in as season 1 hall of fame inductees. Note Admins/ Mods/ League Owners, you guys have control over history and if you want add more in this topic to prove why.

Here's mine

Gereard Madigan- Designed some of the greatest racetracks in the world, Karjala and Decatur are two examples. Plus he was one of the original owners of the TMMC.

Henry Walker- The promoter of ARLA
Benny Dwyer- 6 Time TMMC Champ
Sir Arthur Thomas- See Above


The way that the induction ceremony will work is almost the same as the awards shows at the ends of the season. I'll close the suggestions when we get 30. I will post an updated list every night, hopefully...

I say Lance Andrews, he fought tooth and nail for nearly 20 years to win one race, if that isn't determination, I don't know what is.

If there were a category for the best worst driver, I could say Derek Dudding, R.J. Bandsma and Matt Smith. Razz

Derek Dudding doesn't deserve the hall of fame. with all due respect, when we think of Hall of Fame, we think of people who actually did something worthwhile, not piss off the whole field.

Drivers should be retired before they can be in a hall of fame just because since they are still running they can still accomplish things.



Alan Musico was not the first CRL champ because the CRL began in 1988.

Dudding shouldn't be there.

Rachel Rainsford shouldn't be there.

Anyone still active should not be there.

I removed Dudding just before you posted that. I have to go back to the old forum to find out who the first CRL Champion was, and I can't take away anything from Racheal Rainsford. She broke the sexist line that said women cant race, even though she didn't do very well. Danica was treated the same way in her first year.

Allright, I took off Alan Musico and I still think Reluctently Rachel Rainsford. I also am lowering the limit back down to 30 or until later tonight. I think we have enough talent on this, I leave it up so that if theres anyone important that we have missed. Then what will happen is everyone posts there top 10 votes, and to keep it more like the NASCAR HOF, the admins and mods votes get doubled. And Rember if you think some of the nominee's are dumb, don't vote for them. Note im not trying to bash anyone here.

I'm not touching Mosehez yet, I mean, I was reluctent to put Lance Anderews down, but then I considered his broadcaster. And lets just say I was reluctent to put Steve Marshall down either, but Kez has a point, Rachel Rainsford was a no. We have Alexis up there

I never said that I was going to induct those drivers. I said "If there were a category for the best worst driver". IF. I'm smarter than to think that Derek Dudding of all people should be inducted to the Canon Hall of Fame.

I do agree with you there, Thats why I voted for 5 of them on that list. And I was really reluctent to put a few of them on the list. I will be very blunt here, Woody Watts shouldn't be, Lance Andrews shouldn't be, Steve Marshall as well Too Early for Andy Pearson. I really thought Bjorn Green would easily get in first try. As with Robert Clarke. Rainsford maybe next year.

I think what you're forgetting is, you're putting an RROL champ (which is real-life equivalent to USAC) in before putting in the first female TM Master Cup champ (real-life equivalent to NASCAR.) That's what really angers me about this hall of fame, "class."
