Ayrton Senna began his career with go karts. The three times F1 World Champion, drove the DAP you see in the photo in his last race with karts, in Parma, Italy, in 1981.
The kart was new and it was prepared according to preferences of Senna and immediately after the race, it was bought by Angelo Parilla. The kart was purchased without the engine, but later on it was equipped with an identical one. Since then, it has been used for two hours and it is auctioned “as new” in the upcoming auction of Bonhams and it is estimated that it will be sold for £21,000.
