MICHAEL D'ORLANDO SCORES MAIDEN WKA MANUFACTURERS CUP VICTORY
April 9, 2013
"Victory, podium and four top-ten results in Kershaw, South Carolina"
Closing out the annual Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour (FWT) in late March, Michael d'Orlando would trade in his Vortex Mini Rok and Rotax engines in for Comer and Yamaha power plants and shift his focus to the World Karting Association (WKA) Manufacturers Cup program. With the first event already under wraps, d'Orlando and his Team Koene USA squad would head to Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina for round two of the series.
With cold and rainy conditions presenting themselves on Thursday's prep day, teams would finally hit the track Friday morning. High winds and temperatures below average would be the norm for the day, as drivers would look to get up to speed in their respective classes.
