DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2012

DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When the Red Bull Racing team hits the
track at the Circuit of The Americas this week in Austin, it will transmit
intelligence from the race cars in near-real time to the team's headquarters
in the United Kingdom, thanks to a solution provided by AT&T*, Red Bull
Racing's Official Technical Supplier.

The Red Bull Racing headquarters is at the core of this intelligence and it is
a facility where the race cars go through every phase of design and
development. AT&T is giving U.S. fans the unique chance to win an exclusive
behind the scenes tour of the Red Bull Racing headquarters in the United
Kingdom through its "What's Your Number?" sweepstakes, now through Nov.18 **.

Through AT&T's sponsorship of the Red Bull Racing team, AT&T looks forward to
Grand Prix*** racing's return to the U.S. and offering fans the chance to
learn about this intelligence firsthand at the Austin Fan Fest during the race
weekend, Nov. 16-18. Visitors can test their driving skills in a new racing
game, take pictures with a Red Bull Racing Grand Prix Car, peel out with some
exclusive giveaways and try their hands at the It Can Wait No Texting and
Driving Car Simulator, a driving experience that allows individuals to test
the life-altering effects of texting while driving in a safe, controlled
environment. On Saturday Nov. 17 at 5 p.m. CST, Red Bull Racing test and
reserve driver, Sébastien Buemi, will also be stopping by to sign autographs
and talk about his role with the World Champion winning team.

In a sport where hundredths of a second can make the difference between
winning and losing, Red Bull Racing is making full use of AT&T's high speed
global network. This enhanced connectivity helps keep the leading Grand Prix
team ahead of the competition.

"This relationship allows AT&T to add real technical value to a highly
competitive sport so dependent upon speed," said Andy Geisse, CEO of AT&T
Business Solutions. "Like the Red Bull Racing team, AT&T understands how
fractions of a second can make the difference between winning and losing. Our
technology supports the team's decision makers in this dynamic environment,
and we're excited to contribute to the team's ongoing success."

"'With the enforcement of garage curfews, there is now an even greater
pressure for us to analyze performance data and provide answers back to the
track within the time limits imposed by the regulations," said Christian
Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing. "Increased network performance and
stability ensures greater volumes of data can be gathered from up to 100
sensors on the car and transferred back to the factory for analysis."

Thanks to the AT&T network, Red Bull Racing can make use of specialist
knowledge, for instance by consulting the designer of a part under test. It
offers greater opportunity to perform more detailed analysis and part-to-part
comparisons which ultimately results in a more optimum car setup and
configuration during the race.

This November 16-18, the Red Bull Racing team returns stateside to Austin,
Texas, for the first U.S. race in five years. Fans will soon have the
opportunity to see the cars reach speeds of 200 mph and see firsthand how the
increased flexibility to process and manage up to 100 GB of data during race
weekends contributes to Red Bull Racing's overall performance.
