Saavedra joins Bourdais at KV Racing

Sebastian Saavedra will join last years teammate at Dragon Racing Sebastien Bourdais at KV Racing. His #17 entry will also be backed by AFS racing run by Gary Peterson. Saavedra and Peterson have worked together in both Indy Lights in 2009 and 2012 as well as the IndyCar Series on a part time basis in 2012.

“Yes, it’s very exciting, something we’ve been working for for some time,” he said. “To be part of this great partnership between AFS and KV, it’s something that makes us proud. Looking forward to making a very good season ahead of us.”

On being again teammates with Bourdais, Saavedra feels that this is a positive moving forward.

It’s very important to have some sort of relationship going with your teammate. I think we were able to build that last year.

When we get to work together and really develop a car, know what we like, what don’t we like, I think it’s a huge help when you’re talking to your engineers.

I think joining forces again with a great team that has had a history, of course having the mentality of securing an Indy 500 last year is even more motivation to keep building that strong asset and even look for the championship.
