TT legend John McGuinness has joined the most illustrious names in motorsport after being formally inducted into Motorsport Magazine's Hall of Fame in a black tie event at London’s Royal Opera House last night.

McGuinness joins the list alongside Formula 1 engineer supreme Ross Brawn and 1976 world champion and playboy James Hunt, where they join the likes of Ayrton Senna, Enzo Ferrari, Sir Stirling Moss, Michael Schumacher, Sir Jackie Stewart and Nikki Lauda on an esteemed list of only 25 names.

McGuinness, at 41, nodded to his future at the TT as he collected the award, saying: “I’m nearly 42 and I look pretty average, but in my head I feel pretty good. I’ll carry on for one or two more years yet. I felt a bit nervous to be honest, there are so many champions on four wheels and two, but to see my name up there with the greats is a massive honour.”

The Motor Sport Hall of Fame Awards show will air on Sky's F1 channel (Channel 406) at 8.30pm on Friday January 31 after a review of the Jerez test.
