FORMER FORMULA ONE driver Alessandro Zanardi won again at a motor racing circuit by taking Paralympic gold in the men’s individual H4 (hand-cycle) time-trial on Wednesday.
The Italian’s time of 24:50:22 over the 16km Brands Hatch course was good enough to clinch victory from Norbert Mosandl of Germany and US rider Oscar Sanchez.
Zanardi, a former F1 pilot for Minardi and Lotus who also drove in Indy and touring car races, was critically injured and had to have both legs amputated after a horror smash in 2001.
