Driver: Yazeed Al-Rajhi

A highly experienced co-driver, Orr is a huge asset to Yazeed Al-Rajhi after amassing knowledge of more than 130 world rallies.

His career began as a 15-year-old schoolboy in his native Northern Ireland, but after several years in competition he took time out to join the co-ordination department at M-Sport, where he worked alongside Phil Mills, former co-driver to Petter Solberg.

Orr returned to co-driving in 2000 and four years later he guided Niall McShea to the PWRC title.

Since then he partnered Antony Warmbold, Matthew Wilson and Khalid Al Qassimi in the WRC’s top tier before joining forces with Saudi Arabian Al Rajhi.

Orr's first season alongside Al-Rajhi was in 2012 when they campaigned a Ford Fiesta RRC in the SWRC support category. They took their first victory the next year, winning the now renamed WRC 2 class on the snowy roads of Rally Sweden.

After two more seasons in WRC 2, Orr returned to the sport’s premier category in 2016, guiding Al Rajhi in what proved to be a disappointing first season at the wheel of a Ford Fiesta RS World Rally Car.
