For many of us, our stories begin with amateur racing in SCCA, and our guest is no exception. Full time-secretary and piano teacher by day, by the age of 26 she moonlighted in racing behind the wheel of a Ford Pinto which doubled as her daily driver. Quickly moving up the ranks, she fought alongside names like Haywood, Stuck and Ribbs in Trans-Am and IMSA. She would take home titles in races like the 12 hours of Sebring, 24 hours of Rolex and 24 hours of the Nürburgring. In 1992, the mold wasn't just broken… it was shattered, and at the age of 45, proving that neither gender nor age matter in Motorsports - she entered the Indianapolis 500, earning the title rookie of the year. We are proud to welcome, the one and only, Lyn St. James to Break/Fix.
