Nicholas d'Orlando has proven over the past ten years to be one of North America's top karting talents.   A National Champion in North America and a fierce competitor in the highest level of karting competition in the world, the CIK FIA European Championships, as a driver for the world-renowned Kart Republic factory team, Nicholas now has the opportunity to take his talent to the next level.

The Lucas Oil Karting Scholarship Shoot-Out has selected Nicholas to be one of only 30 karters from around the world to participate in their three days of on- and off-track activities in the Lucas Oil Racing School fleet of Ray GR-RSC race car, at Sebring International Raceway this December 12-14, 2018.  This training event will provide Nicholas' the opportunity to perform in front of the program's panel of judges to determine who will earn the ultimate prize  to compete in the 2019 Lucas Oil Championship Series on full scholarship worth over $75,000!


This is the perfect opportunity for Nicholas to start his career in race cars, after learning his craft the past 10 years in go-karts.   This scholarship opportunity is limited to drivers with no previous competitive auto racing experience so it is a perfect fit for Nicholas'!

But we need your help!!  In order for Nicholas to accept his nomination to compete in the Scholarship Shootout, he is required to complete a 2-Day Basic Racing School with Lucas Oil, and submit an entry fee to compete in the Shootout.   This crowd-funding effort will raise the funds for this 2-Day Basic Racing School and his entry to the Scholarship Shootout, and give Nicholas the opportunity to compete for that full scholarship in the Lucas Oil Championship Series next year!

For more information on Nicholas, check out our website at  http://www.dorlandoracing.com/nicholas.php !  Remember, this program will include drivers from all over the world so we appreciate your help to get the US best talent of Nicholas d'Orlando to the top!!
