Background

Named after the legendary Grand Prix driver Tazio Nuvolari. Tazio began racing at the age of six. His family was vacationing in Portugal (where Tazio's mother was born) and the family visited an outdoor kart track. Tazio's talent was soon realized.
When they returned home, Tazio began racing -- and winning -- soon after. He's been successfully doing so ever since, flying along in races at the club, regional and national circuit. Tazio now holds a junior FIA International racing license, and is competing for USA in the CIK FIA Academy Trophy (Europe). 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.
