The Fazzt Race team is excited to start the final race of the team's rookie season. With a highly talented and devoted team as well as a stellar driver, the season has shaped up to be a very exciting one. With great highs and a few lows, the team has learned a lot over the year and they are really looking forward to one more exciting event to finish off the season. The team has had great support over the year from owner Andre Azzi, and sponsors Bowers & Wilkins, Honda Indy Edmonton, TorcUP, Sennheiser and Service Central. They are really looking forward to another fantastic season for 2011. For the final race FAZZT Race Team will be going "green" with the help of Hannan Customs, a custom bicycle builder out of Quebec, Canada. These "choppers" are human and battery powered topped off with great style. Hannan has made a special Bowers & Wilkins "chopper" for the Miami race that driver Alex Tagliani will be sporting in the paddock to show his green.

Alex Tagliani on the Cafe Do Brasil Indy 300:

"I'm very excited to go back to Homestead; I have really good memories there. Our current design engineer, Alex Timmermans, was my first engineer and with his help I qualified fourth on my first oval race in open wheel. I was leading the race just past the half way point when I made the mistake of passing the pace car coming onto pit and was penalized a lap. I still managed to finish ninth. I'm really looking forward to going back and putting up a good result.

I'm so proud of the team; I can't believe it's already the last race of the year. The season has gone by so fast it's unbelievable. We were a bit worried going into our first season as a new team but after breaking the ice in both the first two tests and the first race, we were the talk of the paddock. I'm so proud of what we've achieved and how much we've been able to accomplish. We've had so much fun competing with the Penske and Ganassi cars, especially at Indy and Mid-Ohio. We qualified so well in Brazil and Sonoma; I definitely think we've exceeded the expectations of everyone. I just want to go into the final race and finish the season on a good note as we start to prepare for our second year."
