Down to the wire…

Here we are already four days into September with only one event and two races remaining in the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge season. Hard to believe!

What a season it has been so far.. the word that best describes the year to date is “consistency”. All season long the goal has been to win races and secure championship points.. We have had great weekends where we were undoubtedly the car to beat and we have had weekends like Sonoma where we clearly were on a points gathering mission. I had a pair of fourth place finishes at Sonoma… not ideal but we collected points and we have a shot at the championship! More importantly, Kia leads the manufacturers points by 8 going into the final weekend!
