She had three wins along with a podium achievement under Audi sport which she was very proud of. Michelle took part in the German rally championship in 1986 and became the first female driver to win such a huge title.

These days, St. James doesn't do much racing but she still remains an active participant in the racing world through other different means. During her active period, Lyn was the first to win the Rookie of the Year during the Indianapolis 500 in the year 1992.
