Tammy Wolf will pilot Mercury - Canada’s Formula 2 race program in 2013. Tammy is Canada’s only female Formula 2 race driver and has won numerous championship throughout her racing career.

The teams first event is in Port Neches, Texas, May 3 - 5. For Canadian residents and fans, Formula powerboat racing will return to Canada this summer at the 75th annual Valleyfield Regatta, July 12, 13, 14 in Quebec.
