Totally Off Topic - Zanardi wins!

  1. I know, I know, but I think that Alex Zanardi's recovery from near death and the loss of both legs is such an inspiration. He won the 2nd World Touring Car Championship race at Oscherleben last nite.

    What a hero!
  2. my ditto to that, what a man!!!
  3. Well done from me as well.

    I've seen a few pictures and seen some reports on just how close they came to losing him due to severe blood loss.

    To not only be walking again (with help from false legs), driving AND WINNING again is a win for the CART Safety Team guys.

    It's their initial treatment that gave him the chance to survive one of the most horrific impacts I've seen in open wheeler racing.
