Glanvill wins Junior scholarship drive KEVIN TURNER
MOTORSPORT NEWS EDITOR “Brian Redman’s success deserves more credit”
Teenager Emily Glanvill has won a fully funded drive in the Junior Saloon Car Championship this season.
She is the winner of the Jscc/teenage Cancer Trust Scholarship after being chosen at a selection day at Silverstone last month. The process involved a media test, fitness challenge and a driving assessment, before the final three – Glanvill, Luke Browning and Angus Dudley – were interviewed.
“I am over the moon. It has been a fantastic day and I can’t wait to get out there and race,” said Glanvill, who has previously raced in autograss.
Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion Tom Oliphant also gave tips on the assessment day.
Dave Beecroft of the JSCC said: “It is our intention that every scholar who attended the event went home having learnt something from their experience with us.”
Tannner: “Once the design has been set, we have to flatten down the design. That is because, as the paint is applied, it can be quite rough and we lacker it and smooth it off. The rest of the periphery things are then reattached to the helmet.”
