DELLC was formed in 2018 as a natural evolution of d’Orlando Racing Corp.

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.

ROAD TO INDY – COOPER TIRES USF2000 CHAMPIONSHIP

Born: March 6, 2002
Height: 6' 4"

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, Michael made his move into race cars in 2018. 

The 20-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, Michael 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. 

For his first two full seasons of car competition in 2020 and 2021, Michael joined Indianapolis-based Cape Motorsports, one of the most accredited race teams in the Road to Indy.  The 2021 season was drastically delayed and condensed due the COVID-19 pandemic, but ultimately his results earned him 4th place overall in the Drivers’ Championship, including his first victory, just slightly behind the highly experienced top-3 competitors. In 2021, Michael was a front-runner in almost all series’ weekend events, bringing home 3 wins, 5 pole positions, 8 podiums and 2 USF2000 qualifying track records, ultimately earning the 2021 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Vice-Champion title.

Michael returns to the Cooper Tires USF 2000 Championship in 2022, under the continued direction of Cape Motorsports, in pursuit of the championship scholarship to continue up the Road to Indy ladder towards a career in INDYCAR.

ROAD TO INDY – COOPER TIRES USF2000 CHAMPIONSHIP

Age: 19
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 165lbs

Nicholas d’Orlando is an 19-year-old race car driver from Hartsdale, NY.  His resume proves to be one of North America's top young motorsports talents, with the skills, focus and dedication needed to compete and win at the highest level. 

At the age of five, Nicholas' began his motorsports career in gokarting at Oakland Valley Race Park in Cuddebackville, NY.  In what began as a family endeavor, the passion has grown into a full-blown career, and up the ladder as a driver for world-renowned race teams.   His karting success includes multiple national championships which ultimately lead to the pinnacle of competitive karting in Europe, as a factory team driver for both CompKart USA and the world championship Kart Republic Factory Race Team. 

Nicholas’ success in karting also broke records with his older brother, Michael.  In 2014 the brothers took two steps on the podium at the FWT Vortex TaG Cadet Championship podium, and then again when Nicholas’ earned the 2015 US Rotax MiniMAX National Championship title, the year after Michael earned the same honor.  They are the first siblings to share these honors.

At the completion of his karting career in 2018, d’Orlando spent the next two years with limited testing or race car experience.  In 2021, he joined forces with Florida-based Team Pelfrey in the Formula Race Productions F1600 Championship series (aka: Formula Ford).  In his rookie year, it was no small feat to bring home 12 victories, 18 podiums and a track record.  It was series domination with a 50% winning percentage and an incredible effort to bring home more wins in a single season than any other driver in the series' 27-year history.

Moving up to Road To Indy’s first step earlier this year, d’Orlando proves to be ready to take another step up. The 19-year-old Hartsdale, NY native will make a move climbing the ladder in the Road to Indy driver development program from the USF Juniors Presented by Cooper Tires series to the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship series with power-house Velocity Racing Development (“VRD”).
