Christina Lam got her start in motorsports during a vacation to Germany in 2012. A quick stop 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 currently competes in her Hi-Speed Motorsports built E46 M3 in SCCA Majors, Hoosier Super Tour, and NASA. She accrued seven podiums in the 2019 season.
She was very 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 International Raceway. Christina has also competed in several endurance races including American Endurance Racing and PBOC’s 6 Hour night enduro at Sebring. Her teams scored 4 wins and 5 podium finishes across 10 races.
Christina was named as one of twelve mentors to be part of the Bell Helmets Women in Motorsports mentor program. The program offers the opportunity for women interested in careers in motorsports, whether on or off the track, the opportunity to receive advice and guidance from women with diverse professional motorsports experience.
In 2018, Christina joined Skip Barber Racing as an instructor. She instructs race school programs and Hagerty Driving Academy 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 sanctioning body. 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.
