The race organizers say ten days of events will include a soccer match between F1 drivers and Brazilian footballers and an exhibition of cars driven by Senna in his career.

There will also be displays of memorabilia and photographs during the "ImolAyrton" period of ceremonies scheduled to happen from the last week in April until 2nd May.

Senna won 41 Grands Prix -- a record since overtaken by Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher -- in his career and still holds the record for the highest number of pole positions gained: 65 in 162 GPs.
