Edoardo Piscopo to race in Champ Car Atlantic Series in 2008 for Eurointernational
Edoardo Piscopo finally made his choice for the 2008 Season. The Italian driver is set to enter next year's Champ Car Atlantic Series, partnering with Eurointernational. The team owned by Antonio Ferrari, that gave Edoardo the chance to debut in the American F.BMW, is a first timer in the series too. At the same time, Edoardo will continue his partnership with the Italian A1GP Team.
"I'm very excited to be back with Eurointernational, as they gave me the first opportunity to step up from go-kart racing. The team - directed by Antonio Ferrari - is also a second family to me. The Champ Car Atlantic series proved to feature an high-level competition, but I'm excited by the new challenge; the United States are also a very fascinating country, and I think I'll have a good time there. The 2008 season will be tough, but we'll be starting to prepare early. We hope we'll have the chance to fight at the top; of course, testing will be vital, and we plan to start very soon...".
Edoardo Piscopo was born February 4, 1988, in Rome. After a long and successful karting experience at both national and international levels, he moved with good results to the F.BMW USA Championship. He joined Red Bull's developmental program the following year, scoring 3rd place in the Italian F.Renault Championship. In 2007, he entered the Formula 3 Euro Series.
