Carmen Rowlands

Name: Carmen Rowlands

Occupation: Scenic artist, lighting designer, and cat herder AKA High School Technical Director

Automotive Background: I grew up around motorcycles thanks to my dad and got my first bike when I was 21. I’m a little late getting into all things automotive, with not a real interest until I started hanging around with the guys working on their project cars/bikes at the Lumber Yard when I moved home after college. I participated in my first autocross event in April of 2011 when Andrew threw me in his MR2 and gave me no choice but to run. So run I did. And I’ve been hooked ever since!

Current Car: 05 Pontiac Vibe, 07 Honda Shadow Spirit 750

Past Cars: 91 Pontiac Sunbird, 97 Pontiac Grand Prix, 01 Suzuki GZ250

Next Car: Hopefully something I can autocross, or use to tow the track toy to events 🙂

Honorable Mention: My dad for fueling my love of motorcycles; Doug, Jason, Bryan, and Ryan for letting me tag along and take shop photos; and the Andrew/Andy Miotter team for all the driving advice and encouragement, as well as letting me be their 3rd driver.
