The iconic Ayrton Senna is set to be honoured with a tribute parade during the Historic Monaco Grand Prix, from 12:50 on Saturday, May 11, little over 30 years on from his untimely death at the infamous Imola circuit on May 1,1994.

Along with the Instituto Ayrton Senna, Lotus Héritage and the McLaren Academy, the Automobile Club of Monaco have put together the tribute, which will see six single seaters from Senna’s career take on four laps of the Principality’s circuit.

Among the drivers of the special cars are Senna’s nephew, Bruno Senna and Senna’s best friend and former Formula 1 driver Thierry Boutsen. The Belgian will take to the wheel of the Lotus 97T that Senna raced to his first ever GP victory in 1985, and to pole position at the Monaco GP a month later.

The Brazilian driver was untouchable in very wet conditions, helping him achieve a record number of six Monaco GP victories in a career that was tragically cut short only a year after his last win in the Principality.
