Here’s what some industry experts are saying about Kyle Marcelli:
“It has been my pleasure to work with Kyle over the past three race seasons. Not only is he a great race car driver, he also processes a great business acumen. He is mature beyond his years both on the race track and in the boardroom.”
Chapman Ducote – CEO, Merchant Services Ltd.
“Kyle is mature both on and off the track. He has a bright future in motorsports. On the track, Kyle is one of the best when it comes to race management, and always has the pace needed to challenge for wins. Off the track, Kyle’s interaction with the media has really improved. His responses to questions during an interview are always informative.”
Russ Bond – Journalist
“I ran Paul Tracy and Scott Maxwell, Gualter Salles, Cristiano da Matta – all those guys. All of them were great drivers, but I think Kyle could be better than any of them.”
Brian Stewart – IndyCar Team Owner
“Some drivers have that special “it” factor, that “something” that separates them from the rest of the pack. From what I have personally seen, I believe that Kyle Marcelli has it. He has the opportunity to grow into a successful racecar driver.
Derek Daly – Ex. Formula 1, IndyCar Driver
“I have worked with many drivers over the years as both Sponsor and Team Owner. What strikes me most about Kyle is his approach to the business side of the Sport. His driving talents speak for itself and that is important. However he gets the business side and how to treats sponsors and business partners is mature beyond his years. It reminds me of Scott Goodyear when we worked together before he hit the Big Time in Indy Cars. This Kid is going to make it!”
Christopher Pfaff – CEO, Pfaff Automotive Group
“I have followed Kyle’s progress for some years now and I am very impressed how he has developed. He has that rare combination of natural talent and a work ethic, which is second to none. This combination is generally a guaranteed recipe for success. With his motivation to win and never give up attitude he is an asset to any team that have ambitions to be successful.”
Stefan Johansson – Ex. Formula 1, IndyCar Driver
“Kyle Marcelli entered the GT3 Cup Challenge Canada already a well-known entity in Canadian racing circles – and he did it for all the right reasons. Already a experianced prototype racing driver, he was looking to diversify his portfolio and gain experience in GT cars like the 911 GT3 Cup. In just a few short months, Kyle impressed the hell out of everyone he came in contact with during his time in the series. As a guest driver for Pfaff Automotive Partners, he was an incredible ambassador for the series, and became the source of the majority of the press coverage. After a successful season demonstrating his skills, it’s time for Kyle to take the next step in his sports car racing career – a drive in the international Porsche Supercup.”
