Born in Barbados and raised on the Cayman Islands, Kyffin is one of the most exciting young racers competing in the United States.

Kyffin began his racing career aged 9 in Barbados, scoring his first championship victory the very same year before going on to win in every season since. Considered and humble, Kyffin prefers to do his talking on the track with success through rock-solid consistency and clean driving.

In 2022, Kyffin was signed to a multi-year development role with NTT INDYCAR SERIES team Chip Ganassi Racing. Bought into the CGR family, Kyffin received driver mentorship, race strategy and engineering support for his INDY NXT by Firestone No. 21 HMD Motorsports program, and worked closely with CGR across INDYCAR weekends to learn from the very best.

Kyffin announced a comprehensive program for 2023, competing in INDY NXT by Firestone, the Asian Le Mans Series and European Le Mans Series in LMP2, and the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup in LMP2.

In 2024, he will achieve his dream of racing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2024, racing alongside teammates Scott Dixon, Alex Palou, Marcus Armstrong and Linus Lundqvist as part of a five-car full season line-up.

Away from the track, Kyffin has embraced the Cayman Island lifestyle. He enjoys kitesurfing, surfing, swimming, cycling, training and wears “baggies” (shorts) almost everywhere he goes.

“I’m proud of my Caribbean roots, and I really feel connected with the people of Cayman. It’s cool to fly the flag on the side of my car, especially as most people don’t know what it is!”
