HARTSDALE, N.Y. – Michael d’Orlando and Indianapolis-based Cape Motorsports will continue their partnership in the Road to Indy’s Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship.
“We started this journey with Michael over a year ago and we’re extremely excited to have him back for our 2021 campaign,” said Dominic Cape, owner of Cape Motorsports. “Michael finished 4th in the 2020 Championship with one victory, five podiums and 10 top-five finishes. Michael will be one of the main contenders for the 2021 Championship, and as a team we will give him all the tools he needs to accomplish his goals.”
When the 2020 season was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire season schedule was condensed into a four month time period with many races held at the same racing circuits.
The relationship and bond between driver and team grew strong quickly despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. Both parties agree that continuing the relationship this year will have the potential to be successful for both parties.
“I’m super excited to be back with Dom and Nick [Cape] and the entire team, for my second full year in the USF2000 championship,” said d’Orlando. “The amount I learned last year is impossible to put into words and I can’t wait to build on it this season. We were quick in the off season testing so I’m super excited to see what speed we can bring to all of the races this year. Together we have the ability to be fight for the championship.”
