Former Red Bull junior Beitske Visser to return to FR3.5 with AVF

The Dutch racer made the big step up from German Formel Masters to FR3.5 for 2014, picking up 11 points on her way to 21st in the standings.

"I can't wait to go back and start preparing for the next season," said Visser.

"So far it has been a great challenge, with some ups and downs, but thanks to the great job by all the AVF personnel I made constant steps that enabled me to get closer to the front.

"I'm convinced that we'll make another step forward in 2015, and I hope for some great moments."

Team boss Adrian Valles, a two-time winner as a driver in FR3.5, said that expectations will be high for Visser in her second season.

"We're happy to continue the work started this year with Beitske in 2015," he said.

"She joined us after running with the small Formel Masters cars and she did a great job, growing consistently and showing that she can be a top 10 runner.

"In post-season testing she improved even further, finding more and more self confidence.

"I can't hide that for next season I expect some top class results and I hope we will be fighting to stay among the top five."
