Summary 
We teamed up with RaceCanada.ca's Mike Sullivan to do a double interview with KIA Kinectic Team. We started off talking with Nic about his days with PTG and Tom Milner in the American LeMans Series. Nic tells us about his time spent with a young Tommy Milner, and then we move on to the race this weekend at the Honda Indy Toronto. Nic is a part-owner of the team, so he gives us some insight into KIA's entry into racing, how they've achieved the solid results they've had so far this season, and what it's like to balance being a team owner and a professional driver for his own team. We turned to Mark Wilkins and discussed what happened to the team during practice on Friday and why they changed a transmission. We discussed the specific challenges of the Toronto IndyCar Circuit and car setup. As Mark has been a 10 year driver for AIM Autosport, we talk about his early experiences with AIM, what he learned at AIM, and his continued association with AIM. Mark tells us about the thrill of getting the call from AIM to drive at this year's 24 Hours of Daytona, and how he felt about getting to drive a Ferrari for the first time in his career.
