Expert | ACP

Los Angeles, CA

It takes a rare kind of man to be a professional driver, and an even rarer man to be a championship-winning driver. So what do we call a man who’s won the North American Rally Cup championship, numerous other road rallies, medaled at the X Games, raced in the Baja 1000 multiple times, has competitively tasted wine, and has five university degrees? Well, here, we call him ACP. Comrie-Picard left a successful career as an entertainment lawyer in New York City to drive professionally, and has since tallied a bevy of accolades on wheels.

Expert | Charlene Bower

Mesa, AZ

Charlene Bower got her start changing tires in a motorcycle dealership, but has since carved out a unique space in the world of motorsports. While she’s an avid off-roader herself, she leaves the professional competition to others. Instead, the owner of Bower Motorsports Media is a PR professional who works with drivers and sponsors to make sure they take advantage of their successes even when they’re not behind the wheel. Even so, you’re more likely to find Bower at off-road events than behind a desk crafting releases.

Expert | Rob MacCachren

Las Vegas, NV

The feeling of coming in first clearly doesn't get old for Rob MacCachren. Over his four-decade-long career, MacCachren has won nearly 300 off-road races including 5 Baja 1000s and 5 Baja 500s. He's also the 2016 LOORRS Pro 2 champion, and also has a SCORE Overall Championship to his name. Although his mind only knows how to go 120%, he's a smooth and polished driver in the dirt. With such a long and distinguished career, it’s only fair that this legend was inducted into the Off-road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2011.

Cameron Pemstein can trace his history with this particular 912 back to his childhood. Originally his father’s Porsche, Cameron can remember helping out in the garage as young as five. Even though he wasn’t tall enough to see over the steering wheel, he’d still stretch out to reach the pedals as his father hollered “pump, pump, hold, release” while working on the brakes. The car eventually went into storage, but the story doesn’t end there.
