The 20 years old russian driver, who has been the first rookie to win a race in World Series by Renault in 2015 will continue with Arden for the new Formula 3.5 V8.

Egor Orudzhev score two victories for Arden in 2015 and scored points on a regular basis which allowed him to finish fifth in the championship.

“I am delighted to be with Arden again for another season. Next year could be a very good year, I am aiming to fight for the top 3 positions at every round and of course fight for the Championship.
