Red Bull kid on the right road

The 2005 Red Bull Driver Search winner John Edwards scored his first podium in European karting competition at the weekend when he finished third in the Pomposa International Cup at the Circuito di Pomposa, near Venice. The 14 year old was up against some of the brightest young Italian hopes.

As a 12 year old at the start of 2004 he took part in a round of the Skip Barber Race Series at Daytona, taking pole and winning the race by 25secs. He moved to Europe this year to drive for the CRG factory team and in the recent Winter Cup at Lonato showed that he should be competitive in the Italian Open Championship this year. The series kicks off at the end of the month.
