Kia Motors America Announces Driver Lineup for 2015 Pirelli World Challenge Season

Kia Motors America and Kinetic Motorsports announced the 2015 driver line-up that will defend that title during the upcoming PWC season. Canadian Mark Wilkins, who finished third in the GTS Driver Championship in each of the last two years, returns to pilot the No. 38 B.R.A.K.E.S. Optima turbo, while experienced British racer, Ben Clucas, reunites with Kinetic Motorsports to make his PWC debut behind the wheel of the No. 36 Kia RacingDonorsChoose.org Optima turbo when the new season begins at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, March 7-8, 2015. Clucas fills the large driving shoes of Kia Racing veteran Nic Jonsson, who remains with the team but will focus on vehicle testing and development instead of on-track PWC competition this season. Clucas' 14-year driving career ranges from single-seat, open-wheel formula cars to high-powered Grand Touring (GT) tin tops. Most recently, Clucas competed in the 2014 Aston Martin Challenge, driving an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 to one race win and two fast race laps. He also competed in the Endurance GT VdeV Championship in a Mosler MT 900, recording one win in that series as well. Additionally, Clucas' driving career includes experience in Spanish GT, Grand-Am Rolex Series, and Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge in which he drove a BMW M3 for Kinetic Motorsports in 2011. Clucas' career has spanned four continents with highlights including the 1999 British Kart Championship, 2002 Formula Ford Championship, 2006 Formula 3 Championship, and the 2009 Spanish GT Championship. Toronto, Ontario, native Wilkins rejoins Kia Racing for his third season behind the wheel of the No. 38 B.R.A.K.E.S. Optima turbo.
