September 11, 2018
Nicholas d'Orlando has been selected by Lucas Oil Race School as one of only 30 finalists worldwide, for a chance to win a full scholarship to compete in the 2019 Lucas Oil Championship Series. This honor will be Nicholas' first opportunity in a race car as he moves from the world of karting to the next step in his career.
The panel of judges at Lucas Oil Race School carefully reviewed all the entries for their Lucas Oil Karting Scholarship Shootout and selected the 15-year-old Hartsdale, NY native, and former US national karting champion, to compete in the three-day event. The factory driver for the world-renowned Kart Republic karting race team is now moving his racing back to the US shores after two years of competition at the world's highest level of karting in the CIK FIA European Championship series. This opportunity with Lucas Oil Race School is the perfect start. The selected competitors, all with no previous competitive car racing experience, will descend upon Sebring International Raceway on December 12-14, 2018 for on- and off-track activities in the Lucas Oil Racing School fleet of Ray GR-RSC race cars, and training to determine who will earn one of the top-5 prizes, with the Champion earning a full season in the 2019 Lucas Oil Championship Series worth over $75,000!
