F1 Racing (UK) - - ESSENTIALS -

For­mer Wil­liams F1 driver Alex Za­nardi lost both his legs in an Indycar ac­ci­dent in 2001, but re­turned to racing with a mod­i­fied car and also took up hand-cy­cling, winning gold at Lon­don’s 2012 Par­a­lympics.

This DVD is the story of Za­nardi team­ing up with for­mer F1 driver Timo Glock and DTM spe­cial­ist Bruno Spen­gler for the 2015 Spa 24 Hours, jux­ta­posed with his life as a par­a­lympian. It means this doc­u­men­tary isn’t sim­ply about mo­tor­sport, but rather an ex­cel­lent and emo­tional hu­man nar­ra­tive.

There’s lit­tle ca­reer con­text here, but only a cur­sory knowl­edge of Za­nardi’s life be­fore Spa is needed for the film to be grip­ping. The DVD also in­cludes an ad­di­tional 50 min­utes of bonus ma­te­rial.
