Alex Tagliani, also known by his racing name TAG, developed a passion for racing at the age of 10 when he was introduced to karting on a visit to see his grandfather in Northern Italy. Currently competing in the Nascar Canadian Tire Series driving the Tagliani Autosport Epipen #18 car, the Montreal native has shown his fans that he can drive anything. Whether it be IndyCar, Nascar, a Prototype or a sedan, Alex's talent and experience is second to none in Canada. In addition during 2016 Alex will race four endurance races in the European "Blancpain GT Series” competing in a Mercedes AMG. A fierce competitor on-track, Alex has many passions including his training and nutrition and his newly formed charitable foundation, the Tagliani Foundation. Alex always takes precautions when managing his life-threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts, which includes carrying his EpiPen® and states that living with food allergies is not something that holds him back in life, he's always ready for a challenge!
