AVF confirm Scott, Bikuña for full-time Eurocup return


Adrian Valles’ team AVF have confirmed their line-ups for both the Eurocup and NEC championships of Formula Renault 2.0 as they expand their commitment in both series.

The Spanish outfit has raced in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series since debuting in the series back in 2013, and will make their first full-time campaign with Briton Harrison Scott and Spaniard Iñigo Bikuña.

Scott moves up into Eurocup after two strong years racing in UK Formula Ford, raking up forty podiums in finishing runner-up in both 2013 and 2014, to Dan Cammish and Jayde Kruger respectively.

Bikuña has long been associated with AVF, having joined the team early in 2014 as a test driver and participating in guest outings for the team in both Eurocup and NEC last year.

As well as their Eurocup announcement, AVF have also announced that Roy Geerts, Josef Zaruba and Henrique Chaves will compete in their NEC line-up in 2015.

Geerts and Zaruba stay with the team for a second season of NEC, with Czech driver Zaruba having had the better year in 2014, finishing on the podium at the Nurburgring finale having taken a shock pole position.

Chaves will be making his single-seater debut this season, stepping up from karting, with his highest honour being Portuguese Cadet champion back in 2010.

Team Principal Adrian Vallés was happy with how his AVF team have expanded in 2015, and feels confident that his team will be able to handle the extra work running full time in both Eurocup and NEC, as well as in Formula Renault 3.5, will bring.

“I’m delighted to announce our plans for the 2015 Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and Eurocup championships,” insisted Vallés. “For us it will be a demanding double commitment, but we’re sure that thanks to the efforts of our staff and the contribution of the drivers, we’ll have the right chance to impress.

“The line-up features an interesting mix of different ages, levels of experience and backgrounds. I think this will provide an additional resource to build on”.
