Another Red Bull American in Europe - John Edwards moves to Italy

New York, NY (07 January 2005) - Thirteen year old American John Edwards is preparing for the trip of a lifetime. Edwards was selected to join the Red Bull Junior Team after the 2004 Red Bull Driver Search, and is leaving today to move to Italy and compete in the Italian Championship, widely recognized as one of the toughest karting championships in the world. Edwards will race with the factory CRG Kart Team, the same team that helped launch the careers of Alex Zanardi and Michael Schumacher, who took his first World Karting Championship with the team in 1987.

Edwards isn't the only one making a big commitment to his future, as his mother will also be moving to Italy with the young star. Even though he is moving from home to live and compete in a foreign country, Edwards has shown the same level-headed nature as he did throughout the Driver Search, and is remarkably unfazed about the challenge.
