Glanvill Graduates To Scottish Minis In 2017

1 Mins read

Emily Glanvill will follow up a promising first car-racing campaign in the Junior Saloon Car Championship this year with an entry into the Celtic Speed Scottish Mini Cooper Cup next season.

Glanvill competed in the JSCC as the first ever winner of the championship’s Scholarship contest, racing to a best of fourteenth in her Teenage Cancer Trust-backed Citroen Saxo.

She will swap that for a Mini Cooper S next season, racing the machine that played the role of guest car this year for the likes of Aiden Moffat, Adam Morgan and Max Coates.

As well as contesting the overall championship, Glanvill will also be targeting class silverware in both the Newcomers Cup and the Ladies Cup in the predominantly Knockhill-based series.

“I’m delighted to be racing a car with such history in the Celtic Speed Mini Cooper Cup in 2017. I’ve always loved a challenge and can’t wait to use all the skills I learnt in the 2016 season,” she said.

“With large, competitive grids and a fully televised calendar, the Scottish Mini Cooper Cup is the perfect championship for me to advance in my racing career!”
