20 years since he died, 30 years since he announced his arrival on the big stage by winning the race of champions at the Nurburgring in a Merc Cosworth. There's a fantastic film from XCAR coming very soon with rare footage of that race and a familiar face* presenting an upbeat feature on the greatest driver ever +++

 

*No tanktop, sorry, black sweater, jeans and yellow adidas this time.

 

Monza, Imola, bollocks.

As long as this doesn't signal loads of blinkered F1 "afficionados" hailing Senna the Saint whilst dismissing Schumacher as a cheat...

 

Looking forward to the programmes though. He had a unique 'feel' that did almost amount to a religious experience. A similar natural talent to Clark, and yet an entirely different character.

mmm, the first 50 signed ones have all gone. I'm pretty sure I was in there for one, as I bought as soon as I got the email.

Now it was going to be for my brother for a birthday present but I think I'll keep it if it's a signed one!

Do you think McLaren and the Senna Foundation would be selling books signed by Mr Senna for £35, from 20 years ago!!!

Not at all, it's just one of those strange things that goes through my head for a short period of time. I agree.it's a nice touch and with only 50 signed, a bit special.

I queued up to get Jackie Stewart's autobiography signed by him as a present to my grandad. It was only after a couple of years he realised it was signed.

I too queued up in 2007 to have Jackie Stewart's autobiogrsphy signed. The length of the queue was surprising.
