Background

Named after legendary Grand Prix driver Tazio Nuvolari, Tazio began racing at the age of six. His family was vacationing in Portugal, where they visited an outdoor kart track. Tazio's talent was soon realized. When they returned home, Tazio began racing and winning right away, accumulating many victories along the way. He's been successfully doing so ever since, flying along in races at the club, Regional, National and International circuit, from Las Vegas to Daytona, and from Portugal to Bahrain. With a Junior FIA International racing license, Tazio was the only driver to compete for USA in the CIK FIA Karting Academy Trophy (International) in 2012 and 2013. After an impressive first time in a Formula 2000 race car, Tazio is now a Skip Barber Racing School graduate. There is no doubt that Tazio wants to become a professional race driver when he grows up, and with the right support and opportunity, he knows he can do it. Tazio has a younger brother named Dario, and his father and mother were born in Italy and Portugal respectively.
