Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame Out of the Starting Gate with Solid Event Line Up

They may be young, but they’re happening! The Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame stands as the guardian of all that’s motorsport-related in the Atlantic region and continues to hold events from dinners to concerts to keep the message alive. Here’s a sampling of some of the season’s best bets…

On Sunday, September 26 at 2:00pm Derrick Paul Miller, originally from Fredericton NB, star of the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo, and tenor with the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto for the past seven years, performed at the Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame to promote his latest recording of sacred and inspirational music, It Is Well... Described as one of the best voices in the Maritimes, Miller brought his entertaining and unique concert of classically inspired music as well as a tribute to our veterans to Petitcodiac this Fall in an inspiring and entertaining show. Dianne Roxborough-Brown accompanied him on piano and Ernie Brown was on trombone.

On October 16 we celebrated our first anniversary of being in our building in Petitcodiac. We have been open to the public, and have had over 700 people through the doors to tour the facility. As the knowledge of our effort spreads, more and more interest will come about. We have vehicles that are one-of-a-kind as well as antiques and racing vehicles. We are gathering history of events from the past. People are bringing information to us. This is an ongoing effort.
