Senna takes lead at auction

Brazillian racing driver Ayrton Senna's jacket from the British Grand Prix 1991, signed by Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna, accompanied by a signed photograph of both drivers on the track, sold for £1,300 at Mander Auctioneers. The jacket came from the 1991 British Grand Prix when Ayrton Senna ran out of fuel on the track and Nigel Mansell gave him a ride back to the pits, a moment subsequently referred to as Senna's taxi moment. They were both asked to sign this jacket by a member of the team after they arrived back together, as a record of their friendship.

A pair of Williams OMP Formula One racing gloves, one signed by Ayrton Senna and dated 94 also sold in the auction for £2,900. Senna won three Formula One world championships for McLaren in 1988, 1990 and 1991. He died during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix for Williams. Mander Auctioneers are now inviting entries for their forthcoming auction. For a free auction valuation contact
