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.
