To mark the 20th anniversary of Senna’s death at Imola the RAC Club displayed his gorgeous 1986 Lotus 98T. Though not as competitive as the McLarens and Williams’, Senna managed to wrestle the Lotus to three pole positions and four podium finishes. Like most cars of the (first) Turbo Era it was frighteningly powerful with 1000 bhp in race set up and over 1300 bhp for qualifying! It is extra special as it was the last Lotus to wear the iconic JPS livery.
