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.”
