From FAZZT Race Team
In the weeks leading up to the start of the IZOD IndyCar series 2011 season, the FAZZT Race Team's Alex Tagliani will be participating in the Rotax Max Series as part of the Florida Karting Winter Tour along with some of the top karting racers in North America.
Starting with this weekend's event in Orlando, Fl. (Jan 21-23), Tagliani will take the wheel of the Bowers & Wilkins TorcUp BIREL kart with a Rotax engine to compete in the DD2 Masters class with the SRA Karting International team. Tagliani will also compete in the February 25-27 tour stop at Palm Beach International Raceway.
The Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour is one of the longest running, largest and most geographically diverse kart racing series in the Americas. The 2010 edition of the tour featured 482 unique competitors representing 23 countries, 25 American states, and five Canadian provinces.
With that added incentive, Tagliani will take to the track with SRA teammates Jan Velez, former ICC champion (DD2 class). Christophe Boisclair, multiple Canadian champion, and Jean-François Lafontaine (Rotax Max class) and Olivier Bédard (Rotax Max Jr.), for two qualifying sessions on Friday, Jan 20th, while Saturday and Sunday will be the racing days at the Orlando Kart Center.
