Alex Zanardi finishes what he started.: After shaking down a specially-modified Champ Car at this weekend's German 500 (pics: 1, 2), former CART and F1 driver Alex Zanardi is about to run the 13 laps remaining after his horrific accident two years ago that cost him both his legs. His subsequent recovery has been more than anyone could have expected. Though a return to racing at that level is out of the question, he's trying to convince Mario Andretti to run teh Daytona 24 Hours with him. Truly inspirational.

I went to Brands Hatch last weekend, and though it wasn't a great race, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Well, he did his laps, and the crowd were nuts. And his time would have landed him 5th on the grid for the race itself. Absolutely amazing.
