"Best FWT results to date including two podiums for Michael"

After joining forces with new karting team Koene USA for the 2013 season, d'Orlando Racing (DRC Inc.) drivers Michael and Nicholas d'Orlando have scored their best ever results in Florida Winter Tour (FWT) action. With their first event with the new team wrapping up in January at Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR), the brothers are now back in action in sunny Homestead, Florida at the Homestead Karting Complex.

Entering the Vortex TaG Cadet category for last weekend's competition, Michael came away with not one, but two podium finishes after placing third on Saturday and second on Sunday. Younger brother Nicholas also had a major breakthrough, placing just outside the top-five with his sixth place run on Sunday.

Both are back on track for a second consecutive weekend with Koene USA for the Rotax portion of the FWT schedule, with Michael tackling the competitive Rotax Mini Max class while Nicholas will see action in Rotax Micro Max.
