Welcoming Mitchell deJong
It's a great pleasure and an honour to announce that we're welcoming Mitchell to the team!
While his performances impressed us, he has also proved to be a great teammate, being around and working well with everyone involved during the daytona 2.4H race preparation.
Whilst still being young, he also has a promising racing career going on, with already some good experience and victories under his belt; we will enjoy sharing his progresses with you on our website and twitter, like we started doing with Davy last year with the Catheram Academy, so stay tuned!
And while we are happy to have him in the team, we also hope to provide a good environment where he can continue to progress, and to have a fruitful collaboration, with many successes. Welcome aboard Mitchell!

Ilkka Haapala, our trackside director:

"It's awesome to have Mitchell join the team. His already impressive real life racing CV and his simracing success are a rarity at such young age. We hope to help his goals with simracing and help him reach the World Championship level in 2014."

Mitchell deJong:

"It is an honor to be invited to join the Orion Race Team. My first race with Orion was the 2014 Daytona 2.4 which went exceptionally well. My goal for 2014 is to make it to the pro F1 series. I'm looking forward to working with the team in future races."
