Kia Racing Wins Round Two of Pirelli World Challenge on the Streets of Long Beach
"It's so satisfying to win here at Long Beach, just a few miles from Kia's U.S. headquarters down in Irvine (Calif.)," said Jönsson, who scored Kia Motors America's (KMA) first professional road racing championship in the U.S. in 2011. "Last season was pretty rough for me. The car was strong, and Mark (Wilkins) scored well, but we weren't able to post those kind of results, so it's fantastic to get back into victory circle. And to be able to share it in-person with all of the KMA team members is just outstanding."
