Touring car racer Ferdinand Habsburg has swapped his Audi for a forklift, as he helps restock shelves with supplies in his country, which imposed strict restrictions on the movement of people to limit the spread of the pandemic.

"I'm an Austrian soldier at the moment and we've all been called to help during this pandemic time," says Habsburg in a video released by his racing team.

"Our job at the moment in the sport department is to help restock the shelves and make sure everything is ready to go" for when food and medical supplies are needed.

Habsburg's packing duties are being undertaken at night while he trains for his WRT racing commitments during the day.
