Dario Franchitti reveals how he's adjusting to single life
Franchitti at the track Thursday
Dario Franchitti is now officially divorced from actress wife Ashley Judd and living back at his £4million mansion in Port of Menteith, near Stirling.

LOVE-SPLIT racing driver Dario Franchitti has told how he’s adjusting to being single since returning to Scotland.

The four-time IndyCar champion revealed he’s now officially divorced from actress wife Ashley Judd after they separated last year.

He has moved back to his $7million mansion in Port of Menteith, near Stirling, from the US after being forced to retire from racing through injury.

Dario, 40, suffered two broken vertebrae, a fractured ankle and concussion in a 200mph smash in Houston, Texas, in October. Asked what it is like being a bachelor again, he said: “It’s different. I tend to rattle about the house a little bit.

“Ashley and I are great friends. We got divorced last year, it was not an easy decision for either of us.

“But we’re still great friends and she’s a very important person in my life.”

He added: “I got to live my dream. What I dreamed of as a kid I got to do for 20 plus years. It was really great, but I was always homesick.

“Scotland is the most wonderful place but just being home is the big thing for me.”

Dario is now working as a IndyCar racing consultant and will be a pundit for US TV at this year’s 500 race.
