Beitske Visser has just been signed by Red Bull as a driver on their Junior Team.  The eighteen year old Netherlands native will represent Red Bull as she competes in the upcoming 2013 season.

Red Bull began the Junior Team in 2011 as a tool to find new talent for open wheel racing programs.  As of today, Beitske Visser is the first and only female that has ever been signed by Red Bull.

Beitske has an impressive background for her age.  She began racing karts at the age of 5 and began organized competition by the age of 12. Beitske began racing in the ADAC Formel Masters for Lotus/Motopark in 2012 where she finished first place in two races.
