Donington Historic Festival Will Celebrate Aryton Senna

The 2013 Donington Historic Festival from May 3-5 will celebrate Ayrton Senna by displaying some of the cars that he raced and having on-track demonstrations of his Ralt RT3 F3 car, Toleman TG-184-02 HartTG 184 HartToleman TG 184 HartUnited Kingdom, 1984 > present2 photos

. There will also be some weirder cars from Senna.

The organizers are still trying to get more Senna cars for the event and would also like to display photographs of Senna’s early career by Keith Sutton.

The Ralt RT3 F3 car that will be on track during the event gave Senna his first win in the series. He won the British and European F2000 Championships in 1982 and was awarded with a ride in the final of F3 race of the season. Senna won in the Ralt in his first F3 race.

In 1983, Senna was given his first test in a Formula 1 car in a Williams FW08CFW08C CosworthWilliams FW08C Cosworth, 1983 > present3 photos
. That car, which Keke Rosberg also drove to victory in the 1983 Monaco Grand Prix, will also be on track during the festival.

Senna’s first Formula 1 car, the 1984 Toleman TG-184-02 Hart turbo, will be on display during the event.

Finally, the 1986 Lotus 98T that Senna won the United States Grand Prix in Detroit in will be at the festival.

The organizers also found two rather odd Senna cars to display. In 1986, Senna wrote an article for Car and Car Conversions magazine in which he drove an MG MetroMetro TurboMG Metro TurboUnited Kingdom, 1982 > present1 photo

and three others. The MG will be on display, and the Cosworth will be part of the live rally demonstration.

The 2013 Donington Historic Festival will have over 400 cars on display covering seven decades.
