If anyone has seen A Star Named Ayrton Senna, or Ayrton Senna: Racing Is In My Blood, will notice that Senna was building a farm, a few houses, and a lake.

Does anyone know where in Brazil it is? Google Maps?

Okay. I think you're right. I found it on Google Maps. It's northwest of Tatui. The Go kart track is east of the lake.

I always thought it was near Angra Dos Reis.

Thanks for the info.

Just out of interest, would you be able to provide a link to this on Google Maps?

Sheer curiosity and all that...

Thanks.

I don't know how to give a URL, but here are some basic, directions,


Go to Google Maps: http://maps.google.com

Type in:
tatui, sao paulo, brazil

You will see it from above, using the Satellite picture with "show Labels" ticked on.

Now Zoom in just above the city of Tatui itself, enough that you can see the city's perimeter.

There is an orange road on the northern perimeter of Tatui, but that runs from west to east called Rod Antonio Romano Schincanol, also labelled: SP-127. (possibly SP-141.)

Slightly above that in the northeast corner of Tatui's city perimeter, is a blue lake, called "Lagoa das Fragas".

Now follow a yellow road alongside it, on the left of it, heading north, called "Estr. dos Fragas". But only for a few centimetres of the screen, to the point where you need to zoom out a little bit. Which is where the road becomes Yellow to a generic white road with no name.

Look in the northwest corner of your screen.

You should then see a blue double lake - looks like a moustache, or a whale's fin/tail, or a pair of sunglasses lenses. It's the biggest lake in the area.

That blue lake is the double lake (later made into one large lake), that is Senna's property.

Zoom in.

The houses are at the south edge of the lake.
The go kart track is at the lake's eastern edge.

Hope that helps.

regards,
doohanOK.

In Google Maps, search for the location, then in the far-right of the screen there's a 'Link' button :)

Ayrton would race with his nephew Bruno Senna on their farm also. Bruno's now a driver for Hispania.

I found his farm near Tatui. The lake looks like airplane wings! Awesome! Anyone know where his home is in Angra Dos Reis?

As far as I can tell, Angra dos Reis isn't too big, it's basically 150km from Rio de Janeiro.

Because it's coastline, it'll be hard to figure out which house it is. Not as easy as a go kart track and a large lake!

I have a feeling it could be too difficult to find - though I do recall hearing a story about Senna and Berger landing a helicopter on a beach around there.

Ideas anyone?

After watching this clip, there are some land marks, but I still can't figure out where the house is..

I don't know exactly where it was in Esher, and would be interested to know.  It was a new house in 1985 =  Maurice Hamilton wrote: 

 

"Twenty-five years ago this week, I had my first interview with Ayrton Senna. It was in the kitchen of a modern detached house he and fellow countryman Mauricio Gugelmin were renting in Esher, a wealthy southern suburb of London.

We were in the kitchen because, judging by the empty rooms elsewhere in the brand new house, this was where the drivers spent most of the little time they had when not either racing or travelling back to Brazil. The strange location, seated round a pine picnic table, merely added to the slightly surreal feeling as I talked to a man clearly on his way to greatness.

This was 13 November 1985."

 

Senna later moved to Tilehurst, near Reading, living in Chelsea Close, before moving to Monaco.
