The name Craig Lowndes will go down in history, when he’s inducted into the 2019 Australia Motor Sport Hall of Fame.
The three-time Supercars champion and seven-time Supercheap Auto Bathurt 1000 victor has been announced as an advance inductee, ahead of the awards night on March 15.
Lowndes is the 72nd inductee into the hall, and joins various other motor sporting legends, Sir Jack Brabham, Alan Jones MBE, Mick Doohan AM and his own mentor, Peter Brock.

His hall of fame position will join the long list of accolades for the champion.
In 2012 Lowndes was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his services to motor sport and the broader community through his commitment to charity and road safety.
He is a five-time winner of Supercars’ Barry Sheene Medal, and named as the ABC Sports Personality of the year at the Australian Institute of Sport Performance Awards.
And just this week, Lowndes was announced as part of Fox Sports’ Supercars commentary team.
While he announced his retirement from full-time competition last year, he’ll continue as a co-driver for Jamie Whincup at the Red Bull Holden Racing Team in this year’s PIRTEK Enduro Cup program.
