The man who Tasmania's proudly followed across decades of success, John Bowe, is to be inducted into the Australian Motorsport Hall of Fame.
Born in Devonport, the 63 year old two time Bathurst winner joins past greats such as Sir Jack Brabham and Peter Brock.
"To be included amongst those sort of people, I'm not sure I'm deserving, but I'm not going to give it back."
Bowe will be inducted with Mark Webber in March just ahead of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix.
