REDS2013Team copyThe REDS Offshore Racing Team will be competing in their hometown of Sarasota for the 29th Annual Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival. For the first time ever, Sarasota fans can see Team REDS competing in the new SBI Super Boat Extreme Class on race day, July 7, 2013.

Team REDS chose this year’s theme as Racing Against Bullying.  The primary REDS crew members include: Eddie Tamberino, Throttles; Nate Hunt, Driver; Dr. Zachary Bush, Navigator, and Mechanics Rob Gourley, Denis Bilodeau and Gary Seaboyer.

“Kids need to know that if they, or someone they know is being bullied, to talk to an adult they trust,” Eddie Tamberino said. “Also, I believe that kids should be encouraged to participate in competitive team sports to channel their energy in a positive way and build self-confidence and respect for other team members.”

Spectre CatFor more than two years, the Team’s title sponsor, AquaNew’s® Watt-Ahh® has donated part of the proceeds from its customers buying the bottled ultra-pure polarized water to ChildHelp®, a company that fights child abuse and neglect. 

Team REDS also thanks the support of its sponsors, Suncoast Motorsports, Best Western Plus – Siesta Key, Charles Schwab, Morton’s Gourmet Market and Stephen M. Musco, CPA.
