The Ayrton Senna Institute has announced a long-term partnership with the Gran Turismo series, which will see the legendary Brazilian racing driver Ayrton Senna feature in Gran Turismo 6.

Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi was at the 2013 Brazil Game Show Press Conference with president of Ayrton Senna Institute (NGO) Viviane Senna (sister to Ayrton), to officially announce the partnership.

One element of the collaboration will see Gran Turismo 6 feature Ayrton Senna through online updates, enabling players to trace the roots of his racing career.

The Ayrton Senna Institute is a non-profit organization established in 1994. Since its establishment, schools supported by the Institute have spread to approximately 25 per cent of the cities in all of Brazil, giving more than 17 million children an opportunity to receive education directly, and the Institute has trained over 750,000 teachers with their educational programs.

Gran Turismo 6 will be released December 6 for PS3.
