Kinetic Motorsports scores first win with privateer Forte Koup Program in Pirelli World Challenge

Kinetic Motorsports, Kia Motors America's racing partner in the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC), made history in Canada recording three podium finishes, including the first two wins for a new pair of privately entered Forte Koups, in the PWC Touring Car A (TC-A) class at
Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP). Series rookie Jason Wolfe, from Mt. Vernon, Ohio, scored both victories behind the wheel of the No. 36 Richard Wolfe Trucking Forte Koup. Wolfe's win in round two marks the first victory for the turbocharged Forte Koup platform in just its second race of the season. His impressive weekend north of the border continued in rounds three and four with another win and second-place finish, which catapulted Wolfe to the top of the TC-A Driver Championship standing, and placed Kia atop the Manufacturer ranking after four rounds.

"Our performance at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park showcases what a great platform the Forte Koup is for racing in this new TC-A class in the Pirelli World Challenge," said Russell Smith, Owner & Driver, Kinetic Motorsports, who also finished with three top-five finishes of his own in the No. 38 Korean Air Forte Koup. "Jason (Wolfe) has tremendous talent behind the wheel of the Forte Koup, and it's clear he will be a force to be reckoned with as the season goes on."
