A host of Formula One star names will descend on the Camden Roundhouse next Tuesday to attend the second Motor Sport Hall of Fame awards evening.

Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Frank Williams and Tony Brooks will be present as Motor Sport magazine inducts more F1 icons into its exclusive club. Last year eight founding members were inducted - Tazio Nuvolari, Enzo Ferrari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Sir Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Sir Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.

The event will be hosted by the BBC's Jake Humphrey and will offer a chance for the great and the good of motor racing to meet up under one roof.

Sir Stirling Moss explained what the Hall of Fame means to him: "I started reading Motor Sport avidly in 1947, or thereabouts, and I haven't missed an issue since then. It's an exceptionally good magazine. To be invited to the opening Motor Sport Hall of Fame event earlier this year, where I was awarded a founding membership, was an absolute delight for me. I can't wait to attend again in 2011 and find out who the next inductees will be."
