OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 27, 2013) - On July 12-14, the Pirelli World Challenge race series will be making their only Canadian stop, debuting on the streets of Toronto at Exhibition Place as part of the Honda Indy Event.

Kia Motors America and Kinetic Motorsports have a team that will be participating. Budds' Kia is proud to be the premier sponsor for both vehicles competing. Prior to setup and qualifying, the team and drivers will be making use of the facilities at Budds' Kia for the second year in a row, to prepare their race vehicles on July 8th and 9th. The team will be arriving with a 52 foot truck and unloading two Kia Optima race vehicles.

Along with the vehicles, Mark Wilkins, one of the drivers from the team will be here for an autograph session on Tuesday, July 9th. Mark is a Canadian driver that will be competing at his home track. He had his first Pirelli World Challenge win last year at the Canadian stop on the circuit. Mark is currently in second place in this year's championship race.
