To go with the first Senna Tribute slideshow unveiled today, more information about what will be contained in the late May update has also been revealed.
Of course fans will already be aware of the iconic Lotus 97T in tobacco-free Team Lotus Special livery, but it seems the content will not be limited to just the one car.
Also coming to GT6 will be Senna’s #17 DAP Racing Kart that he raced in the 1978 World Karting Championship, allowing players to recreate the early years of his racing career.
Players will also be able to access period environments, as Brands Hatch and Monza have been given makeovers to recreate their 1980s layouts – perfect for putting the black & gold Lotus to the test.
The “Ayrton Senna Tribute” is a 4-part special content that retraces the life of Senna through various photographs and videos. Players will have the chance to relive Senna’s career first-hands by driving the same cars and challenging the same events that shaped his legend, such as the #17 DAP Racing Kart he drove to fight in the World Karting Championships and the “Black Beauty” (Senna’s Lotus 97T F1 car) on tracks like the Brands Hatch GP circuit and the Italian circuit of Monza, which have been given a complete makeover in order to restore their original layouts from the ’80s.
The first slideshow meanwhile contains images of Ayrton Senna’s youth, through his childhood and junior karting career and his time with Van Diemen. The second Senna Tribute slideshow – part 2 of a 4 part series – will be unlocked this time next week.
