Klye Tilley and Jerry Kaufman will be running in Pirelli World Challenge’s SprintX series this season with a TRG Aston Martin GT4. We caught up with Kyle to talk about the upcoming season and his career.
You will be joining TRG for PWC’s SprintX series. How did that deal come together?
KT: Kevin was one of the first team owners I met in 2013 when I decided to try my luck in America. We got on well, and whilst we were not able to get a deal done then, we kept in touch and have finally managed to put one together! I will be driving with my friend and coaching client Jerry Kaufman.
SprintX is new to Pirelli World Challenge and some question the format with 60 minute races and a driver change. What are you thoughts on SprintX as a whole?
KT: Personally I love the format! Look at some of the biggest regional GT series in Europe; British GT, ADAC Masters, etc. They have the same format and it works incredibly well. The shorter distance races with the pit stops are exciting to the die hard supporters and general motorsport fans alike.
