At 17, Kyffin is the youngest driver in Indy Lights. He’s also might be the Caribbean’s most promising racer.


Born in Barbados and based in the Cayman Islands, Kyffin began his racing journey at 9 and secured his first championship victory the very same year in the Barbados Karting Association. In 2021, he won the Formula Regional Americas title and was named a member of the HPD GT Academy.


Kyffin has competed in European and United States karting, F4 and Formula Regional and made his first foray in sports car races at the 2022 Rolex 24 At Daytona.


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!”

HMD Motorsports joined the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires in 2017 and quickly made their mark as a front running team. Over the course of the past three seasons, the team has racked up numerous race wins, podiums, pole positions and track records across the three RTI ladder programs. Joining the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship in mid-2017, the team has continued to grow through all three rungs of the ladder series, expanding into Indy Pro 2000 in 2018 and into Indy Lights in 2019. In just three short seasons, HMD Motorsports has become an established front running team, going head-to-head and competing for wins in all three levels.

Halfway through the 2019 season, HMD Motorsports began a complete team overhaul, beginning with a team name change from BN Racing to HMD Motorsports. The team also moved their shop to the Indianapolis, Indiana area. Continuing to round out their crew, HMD Motorsports has brought on several highly experienced personal, including team engineers Yancy Diotalevi, Nathan Toney and Mark Weida. Retiring their USF2000 and Indy Pro 2000 entries, HMD Motorsports turned their focus towards the upper tier of the Road to Indy Ladder Program. Looking to have a minimum of three Indy Lights entries in the 2020 season, the team decided to partake in the FR Americas program in 2020 after the cancellation of the Indy Lights season. While in FR Americas, the team claimed seventeen podiums.

Returning to the Road to Indy for the 2021 season, HMD Motorsports made their official debut as a rookie team since their complete rebuild. As they continued to add on highly experienced personnel and a strong driver lineup, HMD Motorsports immediately became a frontrunning team with ten wins and thirty-three podiums, ultimately claiming the Team Championship title.
