In a surprise move Reds Racing have signed 2010 IFMAR World Champion Cody King. Cody had a great showing at the recent 2012 World’s in Argentina, and with his experience, the Italian company expects to see the engine line evolve and grow to a whole new level during the next two years. Cody and his dad, Paul, will have a full race schedule and will work closely with Mario Rossi on R&D. Cody had this to say:
First, I have to say thank you to Team Orion, and specifically Philippe Neidhart and Adrien Bertin for the last several years together. Adrien has made such good progress over the past few years, and of course with a World Championship, that is something special we did together. I will always have great memories and a special bond with those guys because of our accomplishments. Now we have a change. I have to say thanks to Mario Rossi, Marco Rossi, and Alex Pilson for giving me this great opportunity with Reds Racing. I am super excited to be working with Mario Rossi, I mean what more could you ask for?! Our initial testing of the engines has been very good, tons of power and cool operation. The quality and simplicity using these engines is very good. With such a good factory and Mario guiding the way, it’s going to be a great experience. I can’t wait for the racing season to begin. Our first big stop is coming right up at the Nitro Challenge on February 20th.
