Ken Gushi’s career as a professional driver traces back to when he was only 14 years old, being taught how to drift by his father in a Toyota AE86. Hours of practice behind the wheel eventually led him to pro competition, where he became the youngest driver in both D1GP and Formula Drift history.
In 2008, Ken helped SR by Toyota debut the first ever RWD converted RS*R Scion tC, earning multiple podiums along the way. His career has since come full circle, as he’s taken home the 2nd place overall finish in the 2015 FD Championship in the GReddy Racing Scion FR-S – a car descended from the lineage of the AE86. In 2016, he will be piloting the Greddy Racing Nexen Tire SR by Toyota 86 in the Formula DRIFT series for a shot at the championship title.
