The Orwell EO-96C is Orwell’s entry to the 1996 BRC season. Developed for the sole purpose of racing, the car is powered by a 4.5L, twin turbocharged V8 sending 664 horsepower to the rear wheels. Orwell made sure to use some other racing goodies, like carbon fibre panels and an AHS steel space frame. Other than that, they just got sponsorship with Subbae, which brought in money. The other sponsors brought in money. After testing on Orwell’s own test track, the team isn’t very optimistic about the car. However, it’s their first attempt at racing for over 40 years, so you can’t fault them can you?
Driving the Orwell is Callum Kirkwood, a guy with not much experience in many racing divisions, but is generally pretty good for what he does: racing. With only 2 years of karting and open wheel experience, he has established himself as your average driver. He is aiming to drive in the BRC simply for experience, and he brought in the STD sponsorship. Easy money.
