Austrian Roland Ratzenberger has signed to drive for the new Simtek Formula One team in at least the first five Grands Prix of 1994. He will join David Brabham for testing at Imola prior to the Brazilian GP on March 27.

On 11th March 1994, just few weeks before his fatal race, Ayrton took part in a test session on the Imola racetrack. This amateur footage was taken with a VHS-C camera  at the “Acque Minerali” corner. At the end of the clip, Ayrton is towed back to his box and greets the small crowd on the stands.
