VIDEO> A Tribute to Ayrton Senna da Silva

Seventeen years ago today, at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy, the racing world lost the legendary F1 driver Ayrton Senna, who many racing fans consider to be the best Formula One driver of all time. The death of the three-time Formula One World Champion on May 1, 1994 occurred as a result of his car crashing into a concrete barrier while he was leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

Because of today’s date, I felt it was appropriate to post the trailer to the Working Title Pictures documentary film, SENNA, which will be distributed by Universal Pictures and released in US theaters later this year. The documentary film was actually produced by passionate Brazilians (rightfully so), and was released as a test in Japan, before it went on to win at the Sundance Film Festival. I’ve known about this movie for quite some time; I’ve already seen it, and also did some work on the theatrical posters for the film. I know that tons of people are super excited about this movie, and I personally can’t wait to see the film in a theater – it will be incredible in all its full-screen and surround sound glory. However, for some reason, Working Title and Universal have decided to hold the movie’s theatrical release until later this year. Maybe it’s time that we organize a MotorMavens meet and viewing of the Senna movie?

Rest in Peace, Ayrton Senna da Silva. You will forever be remembered in the hearts and memories of Formula One fans.

    The film is great, but what has been released so far has at least 30 minutes of un-subtitled Spanish, Portuguese, and at least one other language. A must see, for sure.
