FAZZT Signs Developmental Driver

Just a couple weeks after their first test, FAZZT Race Team has signed on Maryeve Dufault as a developmental driver for 2010. Dufault, a Quebec native has past experience in Karting, Formula Jim Russell, Skip Barber, Formula BMW, Star Mazda, and testing for Formula 3 in England.

FAZZT will assist in sponsorship and will field Maryeve in IndyCar's developmental ladder system and in Nascar Canadian Tire Series events with Alex Tagliani's team.

"I am a racer and from a very young age I loved the rush of adrenaline I got from racing. And don't let the feminine side of me fool you, I am very competitive and I am in racing to win" -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. 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. " -FAZZT COO Jim Freudenberg

"Maryeve is a very talented driver who is driven by her commitment to the sport. We are looking forward to having her as a part of FAZZT Race Team and hope that we can play a part in continuing to develop her skills and talent as a driver" -Alex Tagliani
