Submitted by on April 27, 2018

Senna IndyCar Test

Back in 1992, Ayrton Senna tested Team Penske’s race-winning 1992 IndyCar, the Penske PC-21/Chevrolet. This short documentary by motorsport reporter Marshall Pruett and director Travis Long was put together to tell the story of the event for its 25th anniversary late last year.

“That was one of the things he loved about it. He got to drive again.”

The test took place on the 20th of December, 1992, and caused quite a stir in the motorsport world. The documentary covers what went down and why it was such a significant test. It includes interviews with Roger Penske, Rick Mears, Paul Tracy, Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan and Jeremy Shaw as well as plenty of period footage and stills.

Hit play, and enjoy this look at a fascinating moment when the histories of Formula 1 and IndyCar combined.
