Kia Racing Announces Driver Line-Up for 2014 Pirelli World Challenge Season

Kia Racing Announces 2014 Pirelli World Challenge Driver Line-Up
Coming off an impressive sophomore season in which Kia finished second in the Manufacturer's Championship and Kia Racing pilot Mark Wilkins took third in the Driver standings, Kia Motors America (KMA) and its racing partner Kinetic Motorsports today announced their driver line-up for the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) season. Veteran Nic Jönsson, who scored Kia's first professional road racing championship in the 2011 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, returns to pilot the No. 36 DonorsChoose.org Optima turbo, while Canadian Wilkins retains his seat in the No. 38 B.R.A.K.E.S. Optima turbo after a phenomenal season in 2013 in which he claimed six podiums, including two victories, for Kia Racing. After narrowly missing the Driver championship in 2013, Wilkins, Jönsson, and the Kia Racing team are eager to get back on track March 29 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
