Bobby Rahal, president of the Road Racing Drivers Club, has invited Sir Jackie Stewart to be the honoree at the Road Racing Drivers Club (RRDC)’s legends dinner on April 18, 2024. The dinner will be held the Thursday before the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in Long Beach, California, the second leg of the 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES.

Rahal made the announcement at the annual RRDC members’ dinner at the 500 Club at the Daytona International Speedway, in advance of the 62nd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the season opener for the 2024 iMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Sir Jackie 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, et al, along with last year’s honoree, Jacky Ickx.
