Emily started karting at the age of 13 (unusually late for racing drivers) in 2016 in corporate hire karts just for fun, but found she was very fast and naturally gifted on track. She quickly progressed through the ranks, winning races, setting new lap records and taking her first championship title within her first season.
At the age of 14 she started testing race cars and made her race debut just 1 year after her first official MSA kart race, at Rockingham Raceway, England, in arguably the most competitive junior series in the world, the Ginetta Junior Championship.
Following multiple awards and titles, she raced her first full season in the Ginetta Juniors in 2018 and proved a fan favourite through her tenacious driving style on track and approachable personality off it, not to mention her incredible social media engagement.
At the end of that year she was invited to race in the F4SEA (South East Asia) Championship at the Sepang F1 circuit in Malaysia, making her International debut at just 15. She has now competed on three continents adding both the United States of America and Mainland Europe in 2019.
Having taken a short break from racing to concentrate on her school GCSE exams in early 2019, Emily got back in the seat once more just one week after her exams had finished, posting some incredibly fast lap times and showing extreme prowess behind the wheel of a considerably more powerful car than she’d ever driven before; a 355BHP GT4, earning her and her co-driver a podium position in the final four laps of the race.
Her career goes from strength to strength having now competed in America this year, posting her first single seater podiums, fastest laps, pole position and a new lap record at the NCM circuit in Kentucky in August of 2019, which maybe why so many see her as one to watch for the future.
She delivered her first Public Speaking event as an Inspirational Speaker with her “Breaking Boundaries & Perceptions” talks in July of 2019 which was a resounding hot with the schools and children alike which is something she’s every proud of and looking forward to doing more of in the future to help promote that belief in young children and to help them understand they too can follow their dreams.
