Toronto, Canada, June 2010 – Sennheiser Canada announces its partnership with native Canadian, IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani and the FAZZT Race Team. Tagliani has racked up numerous wins in the Champ Car Series and is currently driving in the IZOD IndyCar Series where he sits 12th in the point standings. In 2009 he was named Rookie of the Year at the Indy 500 in 2009 for finishing 11th after starting in the 33rd position.

Then the two are hoisted aloft on a long, thin cable. Once aboard, the aircraft speeds off into the sunset, headed for the nearest hospital helipad. more
