DELLC was formed in 2018 as a natural evolution of d’Orlando Racing Corp. [“DRC”], originally formed in 2009, to meet the ever-growing needs of a developing driver’s career and to leverage the unique network and knowledge obtained over a decade of experience. DRC is the home of two of North America’s top drivers in driver development programs and United States open wheel racing series. Located in Hartsdale, New York, competing with powerhouse teams throughout North America, both d’Orlando pilots have extensive resumes to their credit with over a decade of racing experience starting in go-karting and now in race cars.
With racing in their blood and the sound of fast cars piquing interest at an early age, the d’Orlando boys quickly rose through the ranks of karting from regional, national and international competitions throughout North America, to the world championship level competitions in Europe. Now these top-notch drivers are traveling North America in pursuit of similar results in open wheel car racing.

Michael d’Orlando is one of the United States’ top motorsports talents making his mark on the open wheel car racing scene around North America. After a nine year career in karting, working his way up to the world championship level, d’Orlando made his move into race cars in 2018.
The 18-year-old American from Hartsdale, NY began kart racing at the age of six ,at Oakland Valley Race Park in Cuddebackville, NY. He earned an extensive resume at the national and international level, including multiple championship titles. The culmination of his karting career was capped off as a factory team driver for the world-renowned Birel ART racing team based in Italy.
Michael transitioned from karts to cars, in a limited capacity, in 2018 when he competed in only four events of the Road to Indy Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship series. In 2019, he competed in only four events in the F4 United States Championship series. With such limited experience, he caught the attention of many, with two top-6 finishes in USF2000 and a podium at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX, in front of a packed stadium with fans for the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix.
For the 2020 season, which was drastically delayed and condensed due the COVID-19 pandemic, d’Orlando returned to the Road to Indy Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship series, for his first full season of car racing. Under the direction and support of Indianapolis-based Cape Motorsports race team, one of the most accredited race teams in the Road to Indy, the partnership resulted in five podium appearances, including his maiden victory in open-wheel car racing. This success earned him 4th place overall in the Drivers’ Championship, just slightly behind of the highly experienced top-3 competitors.
Michael d’Orlando is poised to return to the 2021 Road to Indy Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship series, with Cape Motorsports.
