To celebrate the third world championship of Ayrton Senna, who is celebrating 25 years of his 3rd world title in F1, the Ayrton Senna Institute is launching Trophy Ayrton Senna – kart competition that will be held on 3 and 4 December at Karting Arena Sapiens in Florianópolis (SC) . The event will highlight several names of various categories of motorsport such as Formula 1, Indy and Stock Car.
In partnership with Carlinhos Romagnolli, who participated in the organization of the International Challenge of the Stars in all editions and currently organizes 500 Miles Kart KGV, the event’s goal is to achieve a fraternization between drivers, and honor the third world championship won by the Ayrton Senna in Japan at Suzuka on October 20, 1991 after a McLaren one-two.
“Ayrton loved riding a kart, he was the race that gave him more pleasure to drive, so I believe that the best way to honor him for the 25 years of his third title is creating a competition with highly talented riders, “says Bianca Senna, Branding director of Instituto Ayrton Senna and triple champion niece.
The Trophy Ayrton Senna has several names already confirmed: Nelsinho Piquet, Helio Castroneves, Christian Fittipaldi, Pietro Fittipaldi, Marcos Gomes, Felipe Fraga, Ricardo Zonta, Giuliano Raucci, Sergio Sette Câmara, among others.
