We’re excited to share this news on behalf of the coalition of collectors that’s organizing The 2017 Diecast Hall of Fame Ceremony –
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! We’ve made it to the final round of the 2017 Diecast Hall of Fame selection process! Let the voting begin!
Over the last few weeks, our Selection Committee has been hard at work narrowing down the final five nominees for each induction category. We had an extremely competitive 2017 class, with more than 200 fantastic nominations from around the world. And with that, we are super excited to announce the top five selections per category!
With your help, one winner from each category will be inducted into the Diecast Hall of Fame in November. The final winners will be selected based on a combination of committee and public votes. The winners will be announced at the official event in November
Please note: For each category, you can only vote once. Once you submit your votes and email address, you’ll receive an email link you have to click on to confirm your vote. If you would like to vote for all three categories, you will have to submit your information three times.
Collector of the Year Award
The Selection Committee has further decided to give collector Tiny Wozniak an honorary R.A.O.K. award for his contributions to the diecast community.
Diecast Dealer of the Year
Supplier Brand of the Year
New Model Maker of the Year
Automotive Brand of the Year

The two die cast models that any collector should covet are:
1.Pocher 1/8 scale F 40 Ferrari

Feel free to propose the models last year (that being said they need to be models issued in the preceding 12 month as this is an annual award).
It’s RAOK, not ROAK…
Yep, that is corrected (we had thought it stood for Rather Outstanding Act of Kindness 😉
