Brad Kettler is a racer’s racer. Someone who never stops working and is as hands-on as “white shirt” guys go, Brad Kettler started his career as a mechanic across a number of sportscar teams throughout the 1980’s before eventually elevating himself to the role of program director with Audi Sport, eventually becoming the main guy behind all of Audi’s North American efforts in their IMSA LMP1 program, and no running the day-to-day operation of Audi Sport customer racing’s customer service. Even though he’s considered “management,” one walk through the campus that is Kettler Motorwerkes in College Corner, Ohio, will show you just how many projects he has at any one time, with eight buildings spread across the town with various projects. Lunch was served on his farm courtesy of Brad and his girlfriend, with the music of Suspects (of which IMSA mechanic Kyle Leo is a member) taking us out. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Honda for providing a great car.
