    He was involved in an accident with a "heavy vehicle" during a handbike relay race. No word on his condition yet.

    Edit: Autosport article has been updated to say he's undergoing neurosurgery after a severe head injury.

    Edit 2: Another revision to the Autosport article says he's out of surgery and now in intensive care. His condition is described as "very serious".

    edit:

    Zanardi, the big optimist.



    If you haven't watched NO LIMITS, I recommend it...



    I was about 20 feet away from some of those shots... the bloke's a ****ing legend.
