Junior Saloon Car Scholarship winner Emily Glanvill is hoping to put an end to recent bad luck as the series heads to Brands Hatch for round six of the season this weekend. Emily currently sits 22nd in the overall standings with a best result of 14th coming at Pembrey back in April. However, Glanvill has made considerable progress during that time with her racecraft at Donington being particularly impressive before being caught up in several incidents. Brands Hatch will pose a different challenge to the drivers but Emily is confident of strong results as the Junior Saloon Car Championship season passes the halfway mark.
The last two rounds at Rockingham and Donington have been extremely unlucky for Emily with the results not reflecting her true pace. At Rockingham, Glanvill’s initial pace was strong as she placed a respectable 17th in the opening free practice session, before posting a number of highly consistent lap times in qualifying. Despite some challenges in both races, Emily was able to collect a pair of top-20 finishes whilst enjoying a number of close battles.
With no free practice session before qualifying at Donington, it was always going to be a tough test for the drivers; however Emily’s consistency in qualifying was once again commendable as she set three lap times within one tenth of each other to line up 23rd for both races. After making a fantastic start in race one where Glanvill gained ten positions on the opening lap, the race was red flagged with a re-grid ordered. This meant Emily started deep in the field and was involved in an incident on lap two which unfortunately forced her to retire. Another excellent start in race two meant Glanvill was 13th after lap one, but again suffered some damage late in the race courtesy of another driver which led her to a 16th place result.
Throughout the season Emily has worked tirelessly to promote herself on social media and recently launched her new website which includes latest news and reports from events on and off the track. Although receiving superb support from the Junior Saloon Car Scholarship, Glanvill is still seeking sponsors and has put together an excellent sponsorship proposal which lists ways of supporting her and how people can get involved, you can view the proposal here http://media.wix.com/ugd/da1173_7fcc1eb4e9f543c4a42768d06c81c818.pdf. Emily is extremely passionate about her racing and has a great knowledge of the mechanical and media aspects of the sport which would make her perfect driver for any potential business or individual to support.
This weekend will mark the sixth round of the Junior Saloon Car Championship which takes place on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Emily will hope to make use the test sessions on Friday to help familiarise herself with the track ahead of the two races on Sunday. With the shortest lap of the year, Brands Hatch will provide the drivers with a number of overtaking opportunities and some of the most competitive action all season. Glanvill will be aiming to shake the recent bad luck and collect a pair of solid results and continue her impressive starts to give her a chance of challenging for a top-10 position.
Emily would like to thank her sponsors Walero, House of Hearing and Jays Racewear, Fabletics and Ian J Brown & Company for all their continued support. Emily would also like to thank the Junior Saloon Car Championship Scholarship sponsors; Teenage Cancer Trust, Vantage Motor Group, OREX Competition, Junction1 Graphics, Purple M Photo, Custom Cages, GAZ Shocks, Fuel Safe Silverstone, Haymarket Media Group, Tockwith Motorsports, PhotoBox and Yokohama Tyres Europe for their dedication.
