Fresh from victory, the Kia Racing team heads to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, for rounds 11 and 12 of the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC). Canadian-native and Kia Racing driver Mark Wilkins, piloting the No. 38 B.R.AK.E.S. Optima turbo, landed his second win of the 16-race season in his hometown of Toronto just two weeks ago and earned his fifth podium for 2014 during the doubleheader event. With 11 podiums, including five victories, so far this season, Kia continues to lead the Manufacturer Championship, ahead of Ford, Porsche, Chevrolet, Nissan and Aston Martin. Wilkins' impressive record has moved him to the top of the Driver Championship, while teammate Nic Jönsson, pilot of the No. 36 DonorsChoose.org Optima, ranks third among all Grand Touring Sport (GTS) contenders.
