Two life memberships may be allocated each year, provided that the number of Life Members does not exceed 5 per cent of the total FIT membership.

Please note that nominations for 2018 Life Memberships must be received by the Committee prior to COB 6 NOVEMBER 2018.

The FIT Committee will discuss nominations at their Committee meeting scheduled for 7 November, and successful nominations will be presented at the Annual General Meeting on 17 November, 2018 for the endorsement of FIT members.


Each nomination for Life Membership of FIT will be considered on its individual merits. Decisions will be made by the FIT Committee on the basis of:

  • a member’s contribution which is far above and beyond what would normally be expected of club members, or a contribution involving a level of commitment and dedication seldom seen;
  • a member having a minimum of 10 years strong association with FIT, unless exceptional circumstances can be cited;
  • life membership not being automatically granted on the basis of years of service in a particular position, or solely as recognition of success in competitive racing; and
  • significant leadership within FIT.
