The Lower East Side isn’t much of a hotbed for auto racing (unless you’re talking Delancey Street). But on Saturday the area around the Sunshine Cinema is the place to be for Formula One fans. In conjunction with the premiere of “Senna,” a documentary recounting the life and fiery death of racing champion Ayrton Senna, there be a big display of exotic sports cars – including two historic Formula One cars (from the 1970’s).
Race car driver Alex Roy will be on hand with his BMW M5 (the car he used to set the 31 hour and 4 minute transcontinental LA-NYC record). Senna writer Manish Pandey and ESPN commentator John Bisignano will also be there. The cars will be lined up on Forsyth Street between Stanton and East Houston strating at 11 a.m. You can check out the Senna Facebook page for more info.
