Kicera Eyeing Series Return at Road America
July 17, 2020
Lancaster, PA – July 17, 2020 – While a relative newcomer to Trans Am, the restrictions forced upon the world provided Tyler Kicera an opportunity to make a name for himself in the Trans Am by Pirelli Esports Championship. Earning five wins and a runner up finish in the championship, Tyler was in the conversation every week, taking part in a number of dramatic finishes all the way to the final event. With the restrictions being eased and real cars back on the track, the esports standout is eyeing a return to the series behind the wheel of his #4 Carbotech Brakes Ford Mustang at Road America on August 6-8 .
“To say I’m excited to get behind the wheel again is a huge understatement. All of my earlier 2020 racing plans have been postponed or canceled. I suffered a pretty bad right ankle fracture about ten months ago and haven’t been in a race car since, so I’ve had to wait a long time. I need to be realistic about what to expect, but I’m optimistic that if I can keep my nose clean and survive to the end, we can earn a solid finish.”
Kicera’s small family team, consisting of his father (Vic Kicera), grandfather (Bob Filmore) and best friend (Dan Spangler) have some testing planned in the interim and are eager to make the trip from their home base in eastern Pennsylvania to legendary track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
