‘Ayrton Senna Sempre’

If you were in the habit of shopping in Adelaide department stores in the late Eighties or early Nineties, you might have come across a slightly-built, boyish-looking young man patrolling the aisles of the luggage department.

He was looking for bags big enough to transport some shoes back to his native country of Brazil. By ‘some shoes’ we mean 75 pairs: he was buying a pair of shoes for every member of his recently-established charitable foundation. His name was Ayrton Senna.
