Senna: Check out the new UK movie trailer
Posted By: James Allen  |  25 Mar 2011   |  2:45 pm GMT  |  274 comments

I’ve managed to get my hands on the new trailer for the Senna movie due to go on general release in the UK on June 3rd.

It captures the spirit and feel of the film and its haunting soundtrack by Antonio Pinto, which is one of the elements that lifts it to the status of a “classic” in my view.

Last night, at the official Grand Prix Party downtown, I saw Bianca Senna, Ayrton’s niece and she spoke about the family’s happiness with the finished film and the effect it seems to be having on its audiences.

It’s destined to live long, as great films do.

I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away as a prize for the May 3rd screening in London at the Curzon Mayfair with some of Senna’s mechanics and other of his contemporaries in aid of Grand Prix Mechanics Trust, in association with TAG Heuer, where fans will get to hear the inside track from the film makers on how they put the film together.

Senna started six times on pole for the Australian Grand Prix (in Adelaide). To win the tickets post a comment below predicting the gap in seconds between the fastest McLaren and pole position in tomorrow’s Australian GP qualifying.

If you think a McLaren will be on pole put “Pole”. One prediction per person, entries close at the start of Q1 on Saturday. First entry with the right answer gets the prize.

I think the fastest McLaren (Ham) will be 0.572s behind the pole sitter. Which, for another guess will be Vettel over alonso by 0.23 seconds. I've I'm right about both a I want to high-5 a Senna!

Mc Laren will be on Pole.

35

Very cool. I still think their decision to spread the release over the course of many months was pretty foolish (why not time it with the Brazil GP last year or the start of the F1 season this year?). Will catch it in theatres or torrents, whichever comes first.

James,

I'm think that the Red Bulls are going to lock out the front row with possibly the ferraris not far behind so I'm predicting that the fastest McLaren will be 0.283 seconds off pole position time

As a die hard Schumacher fan, every time I see his name, the first that kicks into my mind is that "Oh no not again". Because his fans are going to bash the guy. But I wouldn't allow myself to get carried away and appreciate the greatness of Senna. I can't wait to see this film. As much as some of his fans are annoying, the guy is the heart of the sport and you wouldn't want to miss that if you are a true F1 fan.

And no Mclaren won't be on pole.

Hi James,

Do you have anymore information on the guests who will be attending this event?

Thanks,

Julian
