Thunder in the Park

THE European Minardi team is staging a big promotional event on Tuesday at Donington Park at which there will be the first ever two-seater F1 race.

The team is planning to run five of its eight two-seater chassis in a "friendly" race. The drivers will be Fernando Alonso, Tarso Marques, Alex Yoong, Nigel Mansell and team owner Stoddart himself.

It will be a 12 lap event with no contact allowed between the cars as each will also be carrying a passenger! Around 10,000 people are expected to attend the event which has been heavily publicized in Britain.
