Ayrton Senna Crests Beau Rivage In A Toleman – Monaco 1984
Natural terrain road courses require spectators to travel to their distant locations. In 1929 Anthony Noghès had the idea to bring racing to the city and with the support of the Automobile Club de Monaco organized the first Grand Prix through the narrow twisting streets of the Principality. My first Monaco Grand Prix in 1984 turned out to be historically significant for several reasons. One event frequently discussed was the spectacular performance of a young Ayrton Senna, the reigning British Formula 3 Champion, in a Toleman F1 car. Senna’s drive established a Formula One career that would result in three World Championships.
