Ayrton Senna as a passion and memory (1960-1994)
Dedicated to all who were lost while racing on the limit

I was born in middle class family in 1978. Ever since I can remember being a young boy I was stunned by that yellow helmet and JPS Lotus of Ayrton Senna. Ayrton captivated people not only with his driving skills, but also with his charisma. At that time, he’s made a good impression on me. Besides riding a bicycle which was my passion, I often spent time next to the TV waiting for the next Formula 1 practice, qualifying and finaly race. My room was always been the Temple of Motorsport. I was lived and breathed for Motorsport, especially pinnacle of Motorsport – Formula 1. I was “with” Senna from Mexican Grand Prix in 1986, all to the Imola in 1994. Ayrton Senna represents my childhood, he is synonymous for my growing up and the most beautiful years of my lives. He reminds me of my school days, my old friends, first love, summer school breaks and good old days. I share my passion for Motorsport with almost the whole world thru social networks. I have a great archive of Formula 1 races from 1975 to 2019, but sometimes, I’m afraid to access that hard drive. That hard drive hides many memories and emotions. Senna’s death had a significant impact on me and left a big gap in my life.

I’ve a great interest in computers (hardware & software), IT and computer networks. I’m into gadgets, internet technology, flight simulations, amateur radio, electronic music and all kinds of things. I like reading books, like to spend money on them. One of the biggest reasons why I need to read books is to gain knowledge, mastering a new skills and sometimes to relax myself. Books give me a chance to discover the unknown. Beside passion and admiration for Ayrton Senna and Motorsport, I got involved in making of project “A Tribute to Life Network” because of my interest in World Wide Web and WordPress CMS. It’s great honour and pleasure for me to have 7 internet domains dedicated to Brazilian champion, great challenge to manage two websites on WordPress platform, playing with WordPress security and Blog development as a hobby and passion. Ayrton Senna inspired me to find a passion in my work. Passion is important when it comes to achieving your goals.

after all..

I’m just human, I’ve weakness, I make mistakes and I experience sadness, but I learn from all these things to make me a better person. 2017 was a challenging year, one the most challenging years of my life. It thought me many lessons. But at the end of the day, I’m grateful. I’m grateful to be alive and I’m grateful for my life. For me personally, the month of May has never been great. Ayrton died in May 1994, I’ve fought for my life twice in the month of May. The month of May is a month of spring and is often filled with sun, but I never feel the warmth of that sun. Today, I’m reflecting on all the positive things rather than negative that happened. God lets everything happen for a reason. It’s all a learning process, and you have to go from one level to another. Sometimes our hearts have to break, to create something new, however, that does not mean we are broken.

SENNA, I didn’t have the opportunity to meet you in life, but I hope I’ll meet you there when the time comes. I’d like to show you my tattoo from 1994 when I was 16 years old. I hope so that we can shake our hands and smile again. I’d love to tell you what I’ve done for you all these years, go fishing together, walk around the clouds with you and finally rise that flag for Roland Ratzenberger.

Racing was, and still is a truly dangerous sport and always seems to take those we cherish most. SENNA was gone but not from my mind.

Ayrton, você é meu herói. Obrigado pelos melhores anos da minha vida.
