Al Pal turns 80 on the Sunday of the Sandown meeting.
Here’s hoping it is commemorated properly

Do they ever celebrate other old drivers birthdays?

Not as if Moffat has ever had anything to do with Supercars either?

Raises the same point, how can you be inducted into the hall of fame for something you didn’t have anything to do with?

What if I told you if it were not for Allan Moffat there would likely have never been Supercars?

Touring car racing existed in Australia before Cochrane arrived on the scene believe it or not.The heritage of Supercars goes back to before that corporate entity was formed.

Moffat was a key member of the committee that developed the Group 3A rules.

The other 1999 inductees was well known Supercar drivers Geoghegan, Beechey and Jane.

The criteria refers to Australian Touring Car racing and Supercars.

Even before the 3A rules, Moffat was the one that went to the first negotiation on behalf of what would become TEGA.

Larry Perkins tells the story on Enforcer and the Dude.

Moff went to negotiate on behalf of the whole field and when the promoter called his bluff on all the cars not appearing, Moff opened his briefcase to reveal the log book of every car.

Deal was done, and that moment was the beginning of the strength in numbers and unity that would lead ultimately to the teams recruiting Tony Cochrane.

So why is it not called the “Australian Touring Car” hall of fame then?

Moffat (or Beechey or Jane as mentioned earlier) did not compete in “Supercars” or “V8Supercars”, so why induct them into something with that branding? Supercars did not exist when they competed

I’m pretty sure Moff wasn’t inducted into the hall of fame on the back of being at the forefront of TEG, then TCI and later TEGA

Because it fits in with the current branding.

That kind of thinking is what leads to revisionist history

Was Robbie Francevic the 1986 Supercars Championship winner now?

If you think it should be changed, drop Supercars a line; it's not going to change as a result of this discussion.
