Thanks in part to BMW, Alex Zanardi is behind the wheel of a racecar once again. On October 19, Zanardi will compete for the BMW Italy-Spain team in a BMW 320i car at the FIA European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) race in Monza, Italy.
The BMW 320i was specially designed by BMW for Alex Zanardi. With most of the driving functions in a video game style handset on the steering wheel, Zanardi's BMW will have its accelerator and clutch attached to the steering wheel. The additional hand controls make it possible for Zanardi to drive without legs. http://www.bmwworld.com/racing/etcc/zanardi.htm
