1984 Toleman TG184 Senna (LB) Portugal

TG184 designed by Rory Byrn, the further evolution of TG183, was used by Toleman team during the majority 1984 season. It was the car which made the Ayrton Senna’s glory as the “Rainman” after his fantastic performance in a wet Monaco Grand Prix where Senna almost won when the race was  stopped due to adverse conditions. In Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril, the final round of the 1984 World Drivers’ Championship, Toleman raced in special striped red and white livery.  Senna was already signed to Lotus and that weekend was his final obligation under Toleman. He  surprisingly secured third place in qualifying, only falling behind Nelson Piquet’s Brabham and Alain Prost’s McLaren.  In the race, he performed well again, passing Michele Alboreto (Ferrari) in a fight for third place in the final lap, closing out his story with Toleman with third podium. The scale model is from Lendas Brasileiras do Automobilismo magazine series.
