"On Sunday, 1st May 1994 Ayrton
Senna was leading the San Marino Grand Prix when suddenly his
car veered inexplicably off the track at Tamburello bend. His
Williams - Renault crossed over both the grass and concrete run-off
strips before finally impacting the concrete wall. It is known
for certain that, on impact, a piece of the Williams' front suspension
broke off and flew like a bullet to Senna's forehead, striking
and piercing his helmet. The greatest racing driver the world
had ever seen would be declared dead just over four hours later.
This book is about his life, his victories and his loves. It is
the first proper story of a man the world revered and whose like
will never be seen again."

For several years now, we've heard
rumors of the immanent release of the definitive biography of
the late, great Ayrton Senna. Whispers of lawsuits and canceled
print runs - even bootlegged copies - would surface and be discounted.
One of our best book suppliers assured us late last year that
the project was well and truly dead. We began to believe that
a manuscript never existed. Until now.
'The Life of Senna' exists, and is
now in stock at The Motorsport Collector.
We read a copy of the Pre-Publication
Proof Edition of 'The Life of Senna' and can say with confidence
that this 600 page epic is all that we hoped it would be. Sixty
pages of Keith Sutton photographs illustrate the most comprehensive
racing biography we have ever seen. Along with the story of Senna's
early life and complete racing career, Rubython provides an in-depth
examination of the accident that took his life and the investigations
and trials that followed. He also explores the consequences the
sport has had to endure since Imola 1994.
'The Life of Senna' also provides extensive
statistics, from go karts to Grand Prix, of Senna's monumental
career and the cars he drove to Championships. Whether or not
you were a Senna fan in the day - or if you have come to the sport
since 1994 - this is a must have book for your collection.
