Today is the 20th Anniversary of the horrific crash that took Ayrton Senna’s life.
Senna was a Brazilian Formula 1 driver, whom many consider to be the best the sport ever produced. In 161 career starts, he took 65 Pole Positions and won 41 races.
With the recent release of the new racing game Classic Formula 1, I’m developing an interest in this sport. For me, Formula 1 and the history of the sport is largely uncharted territory. I know next to nothing about it. Exploring the history of F1 has been tremendously gratifying, and the stories of Senna’s greatness have been especially interesting to this newcomer to the sport.
On this, the 20th anniversary of Senna’s death at Imola, Italy, here are a few interesting links that will help put that event into perspective.
