Teen Karter Tazio Torregiani to Promote Safe Driving Among Teens Through His Racing

15-year-old International kart racer Tazio Torregiani is endorsing the “5 to Drive” campaign, to encourage teen drivers to always set the rules before they hit the road.
Did you know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens? The “5 to Drive” campaign was launched during Teen Driver Safety Week in 2013, and it addresses the five most dangerous and deadly behaviors for teen drivers.
The “5 to Drive” rules for teen drivers are:
  • No Phones.
  • No Alcohol.
  • No Speeding.
  • No extra passengers.
  • Buckle Up.
“When I race, I know how important it is to focus, and have both hands on the wheel. On the street you don’t have a helmet, there are many trees, and you are surrounded with distractions, so it’s very important for us teens to take driving very seriously. We are hoping that the ‘5 to Drive’ campaign will get the word out to all teen drivers and passengers alike, and reduce the fatal crashes” commented Tazio, who looks forward to getting his driver’s license soon.
The Stamford High School sophomore has been racing karts since he was six years old, from Las Vegas to Bahrain, and has won many times, including several times at the National level. He is also a recent Skip Barber Racing School graduate in a formula 2000 race car. Thanks to many of his supporters, on November 23rd, Tazio will be racing at the Supernationals in Las Vegas, the largest kart race in North America, with International recognition.

NHTSA’s website www.safercar.gov/parents/teendriving has detailed information and statistics about the five rules designed to help save the lives of teen drivers.

Torregiani Wins National WKA Man Cup Race in South Carolina

Kershaw, SC, USA, April 15, 2014: The weekend of April 4/6 2014, saw Connecticut teen racer Tazio Torregiani take his first National win of the year, in the second round of the WKA Manufacturer Cup National sprint kart series, on the fast Carolina Motorsports Park, in Kershaw SC (USA). Tazio scored two class podiums including a third place on Saturday.
The Fairfield County up and coming race driver is eager to climb the racing latter, and with the right support, partner, and opportunity, he knows he can do it!

The Stamford High freshman was entered to race in the very popular and ultra-competitive Parilla Junior class, with some of the best racers in North America. His Woltjer/Iame powered Haase kart was prepared by Chris Rock, and the Mike Doty Racing team.
The 2012/13 USA CIK FIA Academy Trophy driver didn't seem to have lost his edge, even after being out of a kart for three months since Daytona. On Sunday Tazio qualified third, and won the pre-final race. He started the feature race on pole. “I was fast all weekend from the get go, and finishing 3rd on Saturday made me even more determined to win on Sunday. After battling for the lead for around 3 laps, and dropping a tire that almost took me out of the race, I knew that I needed to focus, get in the lead and make no mistakes, and I did just that! It was a great win and I'd like thank Chris Rock, Mike Doty, and Danny Woltjer for giving me a fast kart. I'd like to dedicate this win to all the safe teen drivers out there on the road, that help save lives”, commented Tazio after the race. Torregiani also secured fastest lap of the race weekend.

 Last February, Torregiani also graduated from the Skip Barber Formula Racing School, in Sebring, FL, with a very impressive showing, in his very first drive in a race car.

He was also recently honored in his hometown, by the Stamford Board of Ed and the Mayor, for his racing achievements.
