Alex Zanardi at Toronto

Alessandro "Alex" Zanardi, two-time CART champion, made his first appearance at a CART event after the devastating accident last September in Germany. Zanardi was Rookie of the Year in 1996 while driving a Reynard-Honda-Firestone R96I for Target/Chip Ganassi Racing. He then dominated the next two seasons, winning back-to-back championships and helping Target/Chip Ganassi achieve a record four straight driver's championships (Vasser '96, Zanardi '97-'98, Montoya '99).

Zanardi waved the green flag for the Toronto race, and his fans and former racing rivals welcomed him back with open arms.

To read an interview with Zanardi, please visit the official CART Site.

CART driver Max Papis, a close friend of Zanardi, posted this picture of Alex sitting in former teammate Tony Kanaan's Pioneer Lola-Honda. Had it not been for the accident, Zanardi would've been driving the Pioneer car for Mo Nunn Racing.

The helmet is Tony Kanaan's, and the right side of the helmet is painted in Alex's helmet colors. Please visit the link below!
