New Blood

The Orion Race Team is delighted to announce not one but two new additions to its roster: Romano Berinić and Luka Petrinić , both from Croatia.

They have shown great consistency over the years in performing at a high level and the aim is for them to develop their full potential within the team. Starting this weekend already, they’re going to compete under the team colors in the iRacing 12 hours of Sebring along their compatriot Zoran Jonjić, in one of the two cars we’ll have in the race. And right now, taking Romano and Luka onboard is proving to be the right decision already, with them both already providing tremendous assistance and feedback for the Sebring 12hrs race preparation.

As you might have noticed, João Vaz decided to go another direction in his simracing career taking on some good opportunity. So while we’re thankful to have had him onboard for so long and wish him the best, going forward it was also a perfect time to get some fresh entries into the team. The next competing seasons are looking bright from here, everyone in the team is pretty pumped up! Welcome Luka, and welcome Romano!
