Iran's Kourosh Khani will return to the FIA Formula Two Championship for rounds seven and eight of the championship at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit after having to miss his last two rounds at the NÃ¼rburgring.
Khani, who holds UK residency, returned to his native Iran in May to hold meetings with government officials and the FIA in order to explore opportunities for developing motorsport in the region. However, during his visit to the country Khani became separated from his travel documents and UK permit which meant he was initially unable to leave the country, and which forced him to withdraw from the two NÃ¼rburgring rounds of the championship.
However, Khani's nightmare is still not over – he is still not allowed to return to his home in the UKand has had to travel overland in order to get to Spa and ensure he is able to compete. “You cannot believe what a nightmare this has been. I've been away for over a month now and have been maintaining my fitness and preparing as best I can whilst travelling. I am looking forward to getting back into the car and putting on a good show in Spa and I would like to thank my fans, friends and family for the support they have given me in these difficult times.”
Khani is confident of a good showing in Spa despite the troubles he has faced and it being his first visit to the legendary Belgian circuit.
