Orudzhev to lead AVF Formula V8 title defence

Egor Orudzhev joins fellow Russian Matevos Isaakyan in defending AVF's Formula V8 3.5 title win in 2017.
AVF has completed its driver line-up for the 2017 Formula V8 3.5 Championship with the signing of multiple race winner Egor Orudzhev.

The Spanish team – headed up by former FR3.5 driver Adrian Valles – secured the inaugural Formula V8 3.5 drivers' title in 2016 with Tom Dillmann but will head into 2017 with an all-new driver line-up.

Having already confirmed Matevos Isaakyan in the first seat, his Russian counterpart Orudzhev will join from Arden as he looks to build on a lucrative 2016 campaign that brought five wins, more than any other driver in the series.

“I am happy to become a part of AV Formula. They were competitive and consistent last year and I look forward to building on this to enjoy even more success in 2017. And this is good opportunity for me to fight for the title. I want to thank once again SMP Racing for their support and believing in me. I really look forward to be back on-track.”

With two race winners on its books, AVF owner Valles is confident his team has the line-up to defend its hard-earned crown.

“We are delighted to field two drivers from SMP Racing, Isaakyan and Orudzhev, in the 2017 World Series Formula V8 3.5. With the addition of Egor, our line-up is definitely one of the most interesting of the whole pack and I think we will be able to challenge once again for the title with both drivers.

“Orudzhev is a quick, smart and talented driver with good experience in the series. In 2016, he made a considerable step forward becoming one of the brightest stars of the championship.”
