Alex Zanardi fighting for his life - again
Apparently, Alex Zanardi is in critical condition after suffering major head injuries in a traffic accident in Tuscany earlier today. https://www.espn.com/racing/story/_/...4686/undefined
C'mon Alex - you have defied all odds before and you can do it again!Oct. 31, 1999 - one of the blackest days in motorsports.

This truly is terrible news. We can only wish him all the best.
He is one of the main inspirations for my book, as said in the foreword. It is dedicated to the likes of him, Billy Monger, Robert Kubica, Niki Lauda and many, many others who have experienced accidents behind the wheel and came back fighting. As well as to those who sadly didn't.
Zanardi is one of the toughest there is.

Terrible news. But he's won battles before. I'm praying that he wins this one. May God watch over him."Every generation's memory is exactly as long as its own experience." --John Kenneth Galbraith

Seems like some good news for someone who certainly deserves it.
Report: Ex-CART champion Alex Zanardi sees 'significant clinical improvements' after crash
The health of former Formula 1 and CART driver Alex Zanardi is improving after a serious handbike accident in June, according to www.formula1.com.
The two-time CART champion veered slightly into the oncoming lane, according to reports, where he collided with a truck during a handbike race in Siena, Italy, resulting in severe head injuries.
The 53-year-old Zanardi was placed in a medical coma and put on a ventilator after the crash, where doctors warned of potential brain damage after sever facial and cranial trauma, according to a USA Today update in July."Every generation's memory is exactly as long as its own experience." --John Kenneth Galbraith
