Tazio Wins at OVRP, NY, in the WKA NJ Sprint Series

Fresh from his first CIK-FIA International race in Portugal, 13 year old Academy driver Tazio Torregiani came back home to show what he had learned, and that he did in the 3rd round of the 2012 WKA Divisional NJ Sprint Series, on the weekend of July 21. The race took place at Oakland Valley Race Park, NY, where Tazio started racing when he was 6. Torregiani went out for qualifying in his Mike Doty prepared Haase Junior Yamaha, and was almost half second faster then anyone else clinching the pole position. In the prefinal race Tazio was unchallenged and won with a dominant lead. In the feature Race it wasn't as easy for the CT racer, he lost his lead mid race, but was able to make a great charge to come back,
" I was able to stay with the leader, and several laps later, coming onto the straight he made the smallest of mistakes which gave me just a good enough run to make the move and pull away" Tazio said later after the race.
Never putting a foot wrong he regained first place and took the win. Tazio drove a memorable race, but couldn't have done it without his younger 12 year old brother Dario, who is the mechanic apprentice. Dario for the first time was alone without his dad who had to work, but still managed to look after Tazio's kart all the way to first place. On Sunday Tazio won the prefinal race and finished second in the final, coming home with two podium Regional results including a win. 
Next race is the fourth round of the WKA Man Cup National in Norway IL. Tazio has never seen this track before, but he's hoping to learn it quickly on the first round of practice, in the first weekend of August. Tazio and his team would like to thank everyone that helped him over the weekend. For more info go to www.TazioRacing.com, brought to you by www.NewCountryPorsche.com.
