HISTORY

ORANGE1RACING, AN ONGOING SUCCESS

Passion, speed, enthusiasm, focused on results. With these assumptions, Orange Holding 1, led by Armando Donazzan, inaugurated the RACING division in 2016. The key word is MOTORS, the core business of the group born in 1971, now  European leader in the  single-phase and three-phase asynchronous electric motors. Great numbers and great challenges faced with entrepreneurial intuition, focusing on the asset of innovation: production capacity of over 1 million electric motors per year, 5 million electric motor windings, over 25,000 tons of die-cast aluminum, 12 millions of high precision turning parts for the automotive sector, an important reference in the market in more than 70 countries, annual turnover of about 235 million Euro, over 1200 people employed in 16 production plants. The first company, EME, was founded by Leone Donazzan in 1971, since then Orange1 have come a long way always with great impetus. As a natural consequence, almost a spin off of the company adventure, the birth of ORANGE1RACING, where the motors become even more protagonists, where the entrepreneurial courage, the strenght of the President and the economic and commercial power of the Holding have even more voice. The co-operation with Sarka Racing, an excellent professional in the world of motor racing competitions in the management of Hospitality, defines the turning point and the perfect conditions to create a TEAM of the highest level. With great determination and straight ideas, the debut came in 2016 in the Blancpain Super Trofeo championship and the GT International (concluded with the victory) and in the Italian Rally Championship to continue in 2017 in the Blancpain Endurance and Sprint Cup and Italian Rally Championship bringing home several podiums and excellent results.In January 2018 the agreement with Grasser Team was signed. The Orange1 Team GRT is born. The new team will race in the Blancpain Endurance and Sprint Gt Series and Adac circuits and has already won the 24-hour Daytona Race. This is a new season to live with passion and enthusiasm and which will lead to great results.
