“Morrie Chandler has been an extraordinarily positive force in New Zealand motorsport for more than 40 years,” says Christie.“Many aspects of our sport, nationally and internationally, have developed and flourished with Morrie’s guidance and ability to bring people together to work for the common good.
“On behalf of MotorSport New Zealand, I congratulate Morrie on this lifetime achievement award from the Halberg Awards. Thank you for your dedication to motorsport, Morrie, and for your advice and mentorship to many of us who follow in your footsteps."I won’t be the only one continuing to seek your input in the years to come, so thank you.” Chandler says he is humbled, but proud to represent motorsport. “I’m proud to see motorsport being recognised by the Halberg Awards and it was a wonderful evening with so many accomplished people.” The annual Halberg Awards is the major fundraiser for the Halberg Foundation, the charity set up by Olympic champion Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ) in 1963 to enhance the lives of physically disabled young New Zealanders by enabling them to participate in sport and recreation.
