Joining Orion in january 2014, Mitchell already has extensive real racing experience and success. His simracing training and career is on its way to flourish all the same thanks to his dedication and determination.

"Hi, my name is Mitchell DeJong, I’m 15 years old and have been racing since I was 5 years old. I started racing go-karts and still drive go-karts to keep my skills sharp. For the past 4 years I have transitioned into off-road trucks and recently, Legends cars. My goal is to become a race champion like my heroes, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Travis Pastrana and of course my Dad, Vince DeJong. Once I’m at the highest level, I can use my talents to hold celebrity events to offer rides to kids who have illnesses, giving them a chance to experience something exciting and special.

When I’m not racing and my schoolwork is done you can find me spending time with my dad prepping my race vehicles, or building and racing TRAXXAS R/C cars. I’m an 8th grade student in Temecula, CA and have maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout my education. I spend a lot of time at my parents business, DeJong Off Road Mfg., where they design and manufacture some of the coolest off road vehicles and develop components for the race, medical and aerospace industries in the machine shop."

United States
Year Born:
1958

Mike got bit by the racing bug when his Dad started racing in SCCA while he was in jr. high school. After college, as soon as he was able to scrape together enough money he went racing too. He ran SCCA national club races for 15 years. He won several class regional and divisional championships and earned 5 invitations to the national runoffs, then held at Road Atlanta. After retiring due to lack of time and money he got involved in R/C racing.

He discovered sim racing in 1998 when he saw an ad in Car and Driver magazine for GPL. Mike went out and bought the game, a video card to run it and a thrustmaster T2 wheel the next day. Now, nearly eight years, several wheels and untold computer ugrades later he's still hooked.

Mike started racing online in 1999 on VROC and was a founding member of the VROC F2 club which still races every Saturday morning. He raced in other GPL leagues including Eric Cote's GPLites, Peter Jensen's F2 League, SNRL and FATSO. He bought and tried the entire series of Papyrus Nascar titles but he's a roadie and never got the hang opf oval racing. When N2K3 came out he started road racing cup and then TA cars with SRRS and then MNRL's GTP league. Now hooked on rFactor running occasionally with SRRS again in the Advanced Trainers and with FLOG in the Megane series and now FIA GTs.

Mike is married with two grown kids and three Australian Shepherd dogs. His other interests include camping, fishing, golf and watching all/any kind of motorsport.
