Ayrton Senna 1982 Formula Ford 2000 Full-Size 1:1 Replica Helmet

In 1982, Senna was a Formula Ford 2000 driver, racing simultaneously in two different competitions (the European and the British championships), and won 22 races.

Ayrton had made to Formula Ford in 1981, when he became champion of the FF1600 category with Van Diemen, the best team in the European Championship, back then. Senna scored 12 wins out of 20 races in three distinct competitions.  In the following year, the Brazilian was promoted in the same team and achieved his record for most victories in a single season.

It wasn’t an easy transition: his new car (the 1982 model) had more power – thanks to its 2-liter engine – and was almost 4 seconds faster. That meant the car was more demanding of the driver. On the other hand, the car had more grip, since it had a rear wing, allowing drivers to be bolder on corners.

His wins in 1982, therefore, were instrumental to the continuation of his career.

In the first six races of the year, the Brazilian was flawless: he had the pole position, led from start to finish and posted the fastest lap in all of them. Senna was on such a hot streak that he managed to win two races on two consecutive days on different tracks: Oulton Park and Silverstone, more than 200 KM apart from each other.
