Zanardi to drive at Lausitzring

Alex Zanardi is due to be the Grand Marshal of the forthcoming CART Champ Car race at the Lausitzring in Germany but there are now rumors suggesting that the Italian, who lost both legs in a crash there two years ago, will actually do some demonstration laps at the wheel of a specially-modified CART car.

Zanardi has already returned to racing machinery, having driven a modified kart at Christmas.

The former Williams F1 driver says that he would like to return to competition one day despite his disability.
