Alex Zanardi to return to racing?

There is speculation that Alex Zanardi will be back in action later this year in the FIA European Touring Car Championship. The Italian former F1 driver lost both his legs in an Champ Car accident at the Lausitzring in September 2001 but has already driven a Champ Car with his artificial legs. A BMW 320i has already been modified to allow Zanardi to race with hand controls and the Italian was out testing the car this week at Misano.

Further tests will take place in August at the Adria circuit and if all goes well Zanardi will race in October at Monza.
