COVID-19 UPDATE FROM OUR CEO
Christina Lam got her start in motorsports during a vacation to Germany in 2012. A touristy trip to the Nürburgring had her in the driver seat of a Suzuki Swift racecar and learning how to drive manual, all at one of the most famous tracks in the world. When she returned home, she dived head first into autocross and track days. There was no turning back.
She bought a 1998 BMW M3 as a dedicated track vehicle. With all the parts nearly two decades old, Christina quickly learned to maintain, upgrade, and build her new car. Within a few short seasons, Christina built her M3 to be a serious track contender to compete in NASA’s Time Trial program. In 2016, her car was built to full race trim by Hi-Speed Motorsports.
Christina drives for Hi-Speed Motorsports in her newly built 2002 E46 M3. She was extremely successful with her prior car, a 1998 E36 M3 in GTS2 with National Auto Sport Association (NASA). In 2017, Christina finished 2nd in the GTS2 Championship in NASA Northeast and 7th overall in the Driver Championships in the Northeast region out of 132 racers. She finished on the podium with a 3rd place at NASA’s 2017 Eastern States Championship race at Sebring. The E46 M3 will be raced in the 2019 season in the SCCA Majors and with NASA.
While sprint racing is her main focus, Christina also drives for the Shift Up Now all female race team in the American Endurance Racing Series and has competed with this team since 2016. They have clinched several wins at Sebring Raceway and New Jersey Motorsports Park.
In addition to racing Christina became a certified instructor for many organizations including NASA, PCA, Trackdaze and more. In 2018, Christina joined Skip Barber Racing as an instructor. She instructs race school programs and teen driving schools for Skip Barber.
While always busy competing on track, Christina began volunteering as official staff for NASA in 2014 and quickly learned the inner workings of the business. She started by working registration and eventually moved to driving the pace car and assisting the Time Trial director. In 2018 she took on the chief position as Time Trial director of the NASA NE region. She has officiated for national level races for NASA. Christina is responsible for upholding high standards of racing and growing the Time Trial program.
