Kia Racing in Hot Pursuit of Pirelli World Challenge Championship in Suspenseful Season Finale at Houston Grand Prix

Kia Racing in hot pursuit of Pirelli World Challenge Championship in Houston
It all comes down to this: After 13 rounds and eight months of intense Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) competition, the 2013 race season makes its final stop at the Houston Grand Prix for a finale where a hotly contested championship chase will finally be decided. Champions will be crowned, and someone will go home empty-handed. The top three drivers in GTS, including Kia Racing's Mark Wilkins in the No. 38 B.R.A.K.E.S. Optima turbo, are only 47 points apart and with a total of 152 points on offer, anything can happen once the green flag drops in the Lone Star State.

Being a temporary street course, every PWC driver faces similar circumstances with regards to time and experience on the Houston track as no one has access to test or drive the circuit prior to this weekend. Wilkins thinks that's an advantage for Kia Racing since Kinetic Motorsports is able to quickly adapt and dial in the Optima.
