About Driver:

Gavin Ketelsen

I am 23 years old and live in central Ohio.  I first learned of drifting in 2008 when I was 8 years old.  I was at FYE and found a Video Option DVD.  Ken Nomura was drifting a Blitz ER34 Skyline, this opened up a whole new world for me.  I was already gaming and soon had the bug for drifting.

The first event I attended was Drift Indy in 2014.  Since then I have attended Grid Life and many drift events at Kil-Care in Xenia, Ohio.  In 2015, I began sim drifting.

The last 3 years I have struggled with anxiety and PTSD.  Each day is a battle with panic attacks and depersonalization.  I went for long periods without leaving the house or driving.  I am slowly but steadily working myself back to being able to experience driving and attending events.

The car community has continually inspired me, so many of those guys have reached out and encouraged me.  Even offered ride alongs.  I am so appreciative of everyone.

See ya on the track 2024!

My Vehicle:

The 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe is my first car.  My dad purchased it for me as a daily in 2016.  I wanted a car I could eventually mod and drift and the G was a perfect fit.  So far I have the diff welded, ISR catback single exit exhaust, BC Racing coilovers, test pipes, INJEN cold air intake, GK Tech Hydro handbrake, and FDF Racing dual caliper for the Hydro.

I still need all of the safety equipment.
