Despite only having begun competing in motorsport in 2016, Emily Linscott, Everyone Active Sporting Champion Athlete and current competitor in the Ginetta Junior Championship, she has progressed quickly through the ranks, rising from a young karting star and graduating to cars in 2017. Now in her first full season of racing Emily has been signed by Arden Motorsport and has won prestigious awards, including the ‘Henry Surtees Teen Racer of the Year 2017’ gong.
As part of her preparation for each race weekend, Emily trains at her local Everyone Active centre and it’s a lot tougher than you might think. The body has to be strong enough to deal with some pretty strong forces, all the while staying utterly focused on what’s coming next. Being fit enough to concentrate effectively is the toughest battle.
In this video, Emily tells us of her passion for the sport, her ambitions and why she makes the sacrifices and puts the work in that she does.
