This is a tribute Ayrton Senna da Silva,a Brazilian racing driver and a three-time Formula 1 champion. He was recognized for having raw qualifying speed and able to outperform the expectations of all around him especially in tricky,wet conditions. His superhuman efforts at times made his other professional racing colleagues look average at best.
His yellow helmet bared the colors of Brazil(Yellow, green & blue). It was instantly recognizable on the track. It was my choice for the NSX's color scheme.
He was killed in an accident in 1994 at Imola(San Marino) when his car veered of track an hit the wall...
He was considered Honda's main innovator in convincing the company to stiffen the NSX chassis further after testing the car at Honda's Suzuka GP circuit in Japan.Senna was given two cars by Honda. The newer one, a black 1993 model, license plate BSS-8888 (the letters meaning Beco - a childhood nickname - Senna Silva and the number 8 is a reference to his first F1 championship in 1988) is still in possession of his family.*wikipedia
