Purchased by me from a reputatable and well know motoring literature dealer before Ayrton Senna's tragic and untimely death.

Lack of space forcing me to sell on some items


This poster is hand signed by various World Champions and other greats of the era :-



ALAN PROST (I think - check pictures)




And 2 others

You will not find another with this collection of greats!!!!

Large format measures approx 90cm x 70cm

This wonderful poster of the Australian Grand Prix - Adelaide Nov 4-7 1993. The last race that the great Ayton Senna actually completed and his last F1 victory!

The 1993 Australian Grand Prix was the final round of the 1993 Formula One season. The 79-lap race was won by McLaren driver Ayrton Senna after he started from pole position. Alain Prost finished second for the Williams team with his teammate Damon Hill third.

Ayrton Senna finished his six-year spell with McLaren (before joining Williams for 1994) by taking his only pole position of the season (the only pole of the season not won by Williams drivers), and his fifth victory of the year. It was the last race that Senna won. This was the last race for cars with active suspension, which were banned from the 1994 season. Having taken his actively suspended Lotus 99T-Honda to victory in the 1987 Monaco Grand Prix, Senna was the first and the last driver to win a race driving an active suspension car. Notably it was Senna's last race win, his last podium and his last classified race before his death at San Marino in 1994. It was also the last Formula One race he completed, as a run of bad luck during the 1994 season resulted in a number of retirements.

It was the last race for four-time World Champion Alain Prost. Senna was so overcome with emotion, knowing his great rival was retiring, that he embraced Prost on top of the rostrum. (Prost's contract with Williams initially included a clause forbidding Senna from joining the team as his team-mate). Riccardo Patrese and Derek Warwick also retired from Formula One after this event, the former having competed in 256 Grands Prix (a record that stood for fifteen years until being beaten by Rubens Barrichello), and the latter signing off on a return year after two seasons' absence from the sport.

The poster is not mint, there are some bumps and ripples to the paper, being consistent with obtaining the signatures, but it will look magnificent framed.

It's been stored rolled since I purchased it and comes from a pet and smoke free home.

I do not have a buy it now, but I would listen to any sensible offers you wish to make above the minimum bid.

DVD's not included sorry.

Good luck
