Walkaround race cars vol.3: Lotus 97T - Ayrton Senna da Silva

Subject: Lotus 97T - Ayrton Senna da Silva
Location: Honolulu, Hawai, USA 2012.
Comments: This post is to celebrate the live of one of the greatest race drivers of all time, Ayrton Senna da Silva, who died in an accident exactly 20 years ago. Famous for his ability to drive fast in rainy weather and for his skills in training, being one of the top pole position winners of F1. The Lotus model 97T was a very competitive car, with 8 pole positions and three wins on the hands of Ayrton during the 1985 season. Driving the Lotus 97T, Ayrton got his first F1 win at the GP of Estoril, Portugal, in 1985 under pouring rain! Sundays were never the same since he passed away. Formula 1 became safer but lost some of it´s charm and glory. May he be always remembered!
