Tonio Liuzzi was a great kart racer in his day, winning the World Super A Championship in 2001 - beating none other than Michael Schumacher in the final race of the year at Schumacher's own home track at Kerpen. He moved on to cars and won the 2004 Formula 3000 series in dominant from and is now a fulltime F1 driver with Scuderia Toro Rosso.

Tonio still loves to kart despite the fact that he is often busy but it has been announced that he will be taking part in the SKUSA SuperNationals at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 10-12, at the wheel of a CRG-Maxter. Keeping him honest will be his F1 team mate Scott Speed.
