It is with great pleasure that we can announce Alex Zanardi will make his motorsport comeback in 2014. He will contest in six of this year's seven Blancpain GT Sprint Series races in a specially prepared BMW Z4 GT3 run by the ROAL Motorsport team.

Zanardi hasn't raced in a competitive motorsport season since 2009, his only track experience an M3 DTM drive in 2012 as he focused on his Paralympic career. Zanardi himself said: "Even after leaving the sport in 2009, I was still a racing driver at heart. When I took to the track in the BMW M3 DTM at the end of 2012, I immediately got itchy fingers again... I am even more pleased that it has worked out with my old friends at ROAL Motorsport. I would like to say a big thank you to BMW for this unique opportunity."

14 Sep 2016 - 14:38 – Former Formula 1 driver Alex Zanardi has claimed a gold medal at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the third of his career.

Zanardi, 49, finished fastest during the H5 Time Trial in Hand Cycling on Wednesday, having won two gold medals at the previous Games in London four years ago.

Zanardi was only third at the halfway point of the 20km race at Pontal but recovered to beat Australian rival Stuart Tripp by 2.74 seconds, winning with an average speed of 41.938km/h.

Zanardi entered 44 Grands Prix for Jordan, Minardi, Lotus and Williams in the 1990s but enjoyed the bulk of his success in CART, collecting titles in 1997 and 1998.

The Italian had both legs amputated in the aftermath of a horror crash at the Lausitzring in 2001, when his car was struck at high-speed during a CART race.

Zanardi returned to competitive motorsport in the World Touring Car Championship, winning races for BMW, and also took up Hand Cycling.

Zanardi won both the Time Trial and Road Race in the H4 category at the London Games four years ago and also added a silver medal for Italy in the Road Team Relay.
