Tagliani returned for more of the same in 2015, but once again returned to the Indianapolis 500. In 2016, though, it was a complete change and into Europe and the Blancpain Series, although he again appeared at Indianapolis. In 2017, he returned to running and racing for his own team in the Canadian NASCAR Pinty's Series. Tagliani started his career in ice racing before moving into karts and then cars. Despite being a regular points scorer, he only ever did win one Champ Car race, which was at Elkhart Lake back in 2004.
