Dear Members 

I would like to share some great news with you, with which your club is delighted to be associated. 

Last year, FIVA (The International Federation of Historic Vehicles) to which IVVCC is affiliated launched its Heritage Hall of Fame to celebrate world famous figures and unsung heroes in automotive history. Earlier this year, Peadar Ward with the unanimous approval of his fellow board members proposed that he would put forward Rosemary Smith as the IVVCC nominee for the 2022 Heritage Hall of Fame and he made a submission outlining Rosemary’s motor sport achievements. Fellow members Martin Taylor and Frank Fennell, facilitated Peadar with suitable high definition photographs.   

We are thrilled to tell you that the submission was successful and Rosemary joins either other worthy recipients of this prestigious honour. She is the first Irish person to be included in the FIVA Heritage Hall of Fame.  

I am sure you will join me in extending our warmest congratulations and best wishes to Rosemary, who has been a great ambassador for women and Irish motorsport, for the honour that is truly well deserved.

Amongst Rosemary’s notable achievements were winning outright, the Tulip Rally in 1964, and of being the oldest person ever to drive a Formula One car (Renault) in 2017.

I am putting the link to the details of the award below, where you can read Rosemary’s citation, as well as the citations for the other recipients. Rosemary is in great company here with names of people many of whom I am sure you will recognise. The list of judges is also very interesting. 

Thank you and happy motoring

Warmest regards,
