Bobby Rahal, president of the Road Racing Drivers Club, recently announced that three-time F1 World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart will be the honoree at the RRDC’s legends dinner on April 18. The dinner will be held the Thursday before the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Stewart will become the 14th legend to be recognized by the RRDC and will join such racing icons as Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, David Hobbs, Roger Penske, along with last year’s honoree, Jacky Ickx.
Proceeds from the dinner will benefit Race for Dementia, the Team USA Scholarship and The Mark Donohue Foundation, which supports the RRDC’s SAFEisFAST initiative.
“We at the RRDC are thrilled to announce that Sir Jackie Stewart will be the 14th honoree at the RRDC’s annual legends dinner in Long Beach. He’s not only a three-time Formula 1 world champion and a true racing personality, his career-long dedication to safety has been invaluable to the sport,” said Rahal. “We are also pleased to lend support to Race for Dementia, a cause that is close to Sir Jackie’s heart.”
