Ty Tessmann has announced his departure from Team Orion. During a four years spend together, the Canadian driver won numerous victories and titles in national and international races. Ty posted the following on social networks:

“For the past 4 years I have raced for Team Orion for my electric program and have had many successes together with them. I would like to thank Phillipe Neidhart for giving me the opportunity to run for Orion, I would also like to thank Joe Pillars for the great support all the time, whether at races or not, you are a great asset to the team. I don’t take changing sponsors lightly but I feel it is now time for me to go a different direction for my electric program. I’m looking forward to great things in 2018.”
