Gran Turismo 7 Lap Time Challenge, 29 September to 13 October: Senna sensational at Suzuka

Gran Turismo 7’s latest lap time challenge features Ayrton Senna’s iconic McLaren MP4/4 ’88 at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

In the fortnight’s Gran Turismo 7 Lap Time Challenge, players will take on the Suzuka Circuit in Japan with the legendary McLaren MP4/4 Formula 1 car driven by both Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna in the 1988 season was driven.

The Steve Nichols-designed car was the dominant force in 1988, claiming 15 wins from 16 races, with Prost claiming seven wins. Senna claimed eight wins on his way to the Drivers’ Championship, including an unorthodox win at Suzuka.

The Brazilian faltered from pole but was able to jump start his car and launch a thrilling rush through the field in changeable conditions to snatch victory from his teammate (who was suffering from gearbox problems).

The win was significant as Suzuka was the home track of McLaren’s engine supplier Honda. The Japanese engine supplier had reached the pinnacle of development in 1989 with its 1.5-liter turbo engine before the ban on supercharged engines.

Although Prost insisted that McLaren bring Senna on board, their relationship began to deteriorate, leading to Prost’s departure to Ferrari in 1990. This was before Prost clinched another world title at the 1989 Suzuka Grand Prix after an encounter with Senna resulted in the Brazilian’s disqualification.

At the 1990 Suzuka GP, their relationship soured further when Senna, upset at taking pole position on the dirt side of the track, vowed to take the lead at Turn 1 no matter what. And he did it, crashing into Prost, retiring both cars and gifting another championship to Senna.
