We are extremely excited to announce that Kelsey Rowlings has partnered up with Konig for the 2017 Formula Drift Pro 2 season. Kelsey is super down to earth, a real car enthusiast and an incredibly talented professional drifter.

Kelsey started to get into drifting about 10 years ago around the time she was graduating from high school. Like many people the excitement of the sport of drifting sucked her in and paved the way for an exciting professional drifting career. She began competing in Pro-Am competitions and with several years of hard work she placed 4th overall in the Streetwise Drift ProAm series in 2014, and 2nd overall in the 2014 Three Palms Drift ProAm series. That is where Kelsey earned her Formula Drift Pro 2 license for the 2015 season.

In 2015, Kelsey become only the second woman in Formula Drift history to qualify for tandem competition. Kelsey continued to work hard on her skills and her program in 2016 by competing in the Pro 2 series as well as a multitude of drift events, exhibitions and demos. We’re very proud to be a small part of Kelsey’s program for 2017.

  1. Good Evening I am a disabled veteran and owner of a 2104 scion FRS. I love the concept of drifting and working on cars. I am a huge fan of Formula D and I would like to start drifting ASAP. But I have no idea where to start. I have some basic mechanic skills, and some knowledge of counter steering to control the car during a slide(drift). What or where should I go to pursue these dreams and become a Formula D driver? What type of modifications should I be concentrating in, to make my car drift capable and a heavy hitter on the track.

  2. Hi Jimmy! Thanks so much for your comment and for your service! Drifting is no doubt an exciting form of Motorsports. FD participates with multiple feeder and pro-am series to cultivate drivers looking to move up the latter. It takes years of skill, money and car building to get to a professional level. However getting started isn’t hard. You need to find a local place that allows you to do this and then luckily for you the Internet is a great help. Listen to what Patrick Mordaunt has to say in this video around the 0:50 mark. https://konigwheels.com/faces-of-konig-videos/pat-mordaunt/ Its a great point to get a few important parts and start building skill. Additionally for the actual learning the basics of drifting, Formula Drift Driver Chelsea DeNofa does a great job teaching in his Youtube series “How To Drift”.
