Tazio Wins Indoor at Grand Prix New York

12 Year old Tazio Torregiani will race at Grand Prix New York this winter at select races on Sundays. Tazio is an outdoor sprint kart National racer, but racing at the local indoor track in Mount Kisco NY gives the CT karter a convenient opportunity to stay active and sharp as he prepares for his next big WKA race in South Carolina in March.
the karts here are different. They are bigger and heavier and are powered by a four stroke engine versus the lighter two stroke power Merlin karts he drives outdoor. The racing here however is no walk in the park for Tazio. Passing is very difficult in the very tight indoor tracks, and he races against the strongest group where the fastest are 15 to 16 year old. To make the racing fair Tazio has to add 50 lbs ballast weight to his kart to match the weight of the heaviest drivers in his group.
The first race of the Junior winter series was Sunday January 9th. In the closing lap of qualifying Tazio secured Pole Position, and in the third and final race Tazio made his move with a last lap pass and won the race.
In the second round on 1/23/11, Tazio went for a difficult pass that didn't work which kept him from winning. He did however secure fastest lap of the race which awards bonus points.
Tazio is currently leading the indoor points standings and will be back at GPNY on 2/6/11.
