    Starting in 2002 Christopher Brown went to work for MoTeC USA as a track support engineer. MoTeC builds electronic systems for a variety of motorsports. He has worked in all levels of racing including IndyCar, American LeMans and Grand-Am. When he's not at the track, Christopher works back in the office doing product development and CAD design.

    Christopher Brown was raised in Portland, Oregon. At the age of 13 he started building and racing radio controlled cars. At the age of 15 he worked at a local hobby store to support his racing habits, and continue winning a collection of racing trophies.
    His interest in cars lead him to a degree in Mechanical Engineering. While at Oregon State University he embarked on many different projects adding diversity to his life. Jobs such as a resident assistant, research assistant and writer/photographer for the school paper. For his senior project, Christopher got involved in Formula SAE (click here to see pictures and further info). He was also Vice President of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers OSU chapter. Christopher recieved the Dr. Zaworski memorial scholarship and attended the University of Nottingham on a one year exchange program. He completed his Bachelor of Science and studied composites for his Masters research project while in England. He graduated with Cum Laude Honors.
    While in England, Christopher had his first experience behind the wheel of a race car by attending the Jim Russell Racing Drivers School at the famous Donington circuit. This exposure at the track lead to his first job with data acqusition analyzing data in the National Formula Vauxhaul Jr series.
    When Christopher returned to the states, he worked at Parametric Technology Corporation. As an Applications Engineer he traveled around to different customers doing implementation of computer software, technical support and sales demonstrations. The training he received on their CAD software (computer aided design) allowed him to start a consulting business of his own, helping to design a wide variety of things from high end kitchen ovens to car transportation trailers.
    Christopher started racing again in 1999 driving a Spec Racer Ford. In 2000 he competed in a professional Formula Mazda race only to get knocked out in the first corner by his teammate nonetheless. After that crash, the lack of funding forced him to compete in only a few races each year. In 2003, Christopher acheived his first regional and national SCCA race wins. Most of his driving now is based around autocross events, track day events and instructing at various schools and car clubs.
