FAZZT Race Team Begins Development Program Signs Canadian Maryeve Dufault
Indianapolis (Jan. 26, 2010) -The FAZZT Race Team has taken the initial steps into creating a development program with the signing of Canadian Maryeve Dufault.
"As we continue to build the FAZZT Race Team programs we have an incredible amount of support from Canadian companies for our Canadian driver and team," explained team COO Jim Freudenberg. "When the opportunity arose to meet Maryeve and discuss supporting and developing her racing career we saw it as a great opportunity for our team and partners to continue to develop racing talent from Canada. Her racing skill and understanding of the commercial side of racing combined with her marketability make her a great teammate for Alex and FAZZT. "
Maryeve, a native of Sorel, Quebec, has an extensive racing background in the ladder series including karting, Formula Jim Russell, Skip Barber, Formula BMW, Star Mazda and a stint testing for Formula 3 in England. "I am a racer and from a very young age I loved the rush of adrenaline I got from racing," said Maryeve. "And don't let the feminine side of me fool you, I am very competitive and I am in racing to win." Maryeve is currently driving in the Rotax International Karting Series and continuing to develop her racing skills.
Maryeve came to the attention of FAZZT Race Team driver Alex Tagliani during her racing in the Rotax International Series. "Maryeve is a very talented driver who is driven by her commitment to the sport," said Alex. "We are looking forward to having her as a part of the FAZZT Race Team and hope that we can play a part in continuing to develop her skills and talent as a driver."
FAZZT Race Team will assist Maryeve in her sponsorship development with the intent to field her in IndyCar development series events and also the Nascar Canadian Tire Series events with Tagliani's Canadian Tire Series team.
