Tazio Wins in First Round of 2011 WKA Regional NJ Sprint Series

 The 2011 WKA NJ Sprint series kicked off at Raceway Park in Englishtown NJ on May 14th and 15th.
A very confident Tazio Torregiani arrived after his third top ten Man Cup National finish in Southbend IN, and a win on Mother's Day in the Raceway Park Karting Series.
Tazio was very fast out of the box. In cadet class, on Saturday"s Final 1 race, Tazio caught the leader on the last lap at the end of the back straight. It did not look as if he was close enough, but Tazio braked very late and dove in for the pass, he put his kart right alongside but the other driver didn't let him in and closed the door. The two karts made contact and spun off the track allowing a close third place driver to grab the win.
In the Cadet Final 2 race on Sunday, Tazio was even faster on a drying track. He passed for the lead early on and opened a nice gap to the second and third karts who were battling for position.

On the last lap as Torregiani entered the straight, he took a more defensive middle line and hit a puddle of water half way down the straight which caused him to slide off the track as he braked for the turn, giving away another win to the driver behind.
It would be in Yamaha Sportsman Light class that everything would go Tazio's way. It seemed as every race was his to win or loose. During the final Race he charged from third and passed for second, and than passed for the lead with his Merlin kart. He opened up a sizable gap which allowed him to finish first and grab his first Regional win of the year.
