To commemorate the partnership with Ayrton Senna Institute and Gran Turismo, a short documentary "Ayrton's Wish", is featured within the website. The film revolves around the Ayrton Senna Institute, which was established by Ayrton's sister Viviane who carried on his hopes and dreams after he passed away.
Ayrton's WishOn 1 May 1994, Ayrton Senna, 3 time Formula One world champion died in a tragic accident leaving his family, fans and nation to mourn the loss of the world’s greatest race car driver. In the wake of his passing, Ayrton's sister Viviane set up the Instituto Ayrton Senna (IAS) to fulfill his longing to help his countrymen.
Ayrton’s Wish explores Senna’s dream to give the children of Brazil opportunity to realise their own potential, and the new found relationship between Gran Turismo and IAS. More important than Senna’s success behind the wheel, the film speaks to Ayrton's love for Brazil.
The film is directed by Tamir Moscovici, who also directed “KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide”, a movie created as part of the celebration for Gran Turismo's 15th Anniversary. "KAZ" won the "Best Long Format Featuring Promotional Content" category at the Game Marketing Awards 2014.
