The followup to The AV Life Episode 103, once again Emily Linscott and her father Mark join Corey, this time along with Vin Bruno who is the CEO at premier home theater company Rayva, and Toni Sabatino, well-known home designer and NKBA Manhattan, NY Chapter President.

Both Vin and Toni attended CEDIA Expo (the leading industry event in connected technology) in September, and as we found out on the previous podcast, Mark was a residential and commercial integrator in the UK before forming Moose Motorsport Ltd. 

The conversation begins with Formula 4 discussion, and how Emily began driving an F4 car. In short, as Mark says she owned it – and she now prefers to drive Formula 4. There is an upcoming race in Malaysia – you’ll hear Mark talk about it, as well as getting Emily into the race. Emily talks about Malaysia, and all learn that this is a real test for a driver, which Emily is fully up for. 

Corey continues discussion with Mark about the upcoming F4 in Malaysia, and how demanding this race is in these conditions – along with the huge opportunity this is for Emily entering her 2019 race year. And — this would be her first ever Formula 4 race.

Emily talks about when she first began auto racing, along with a recent race in August. Listen as Vin talks about Emily and “natural born” talent, then Toni mentions that Emily coming to the U.S. very soon, to train with Pippa Mann. Mark talks about this, and what it means. Emily talks about it as well. 

Mark then talks about the 2019 race season, there’s further discussion about Malaysia, and how Emily is looking at it – the race, and this being prep for racing in 2019. 

Vin and Corey also talk with Emily about her rigorous gym training. Mark talks more about sending Emily to Malaysia along with just how rigorous an experience it is, as well as funding (you’ll find out more about this very soon). Emily describes exactly what it’s like to be behind the wheel, along with the necessary training, and mental preparation – Corey and Vin talk about such preparation as well. 

Emily talks about been nominated in certain racing categories – find out how you can vote for her.

Mark Linscott – Managing Director at iQ Communications Ltd and Director, Moose Motorsport Ltd

Emily Linscott – Racing Driver – multi award winning 15 year old Champion athlete – Brand Ambassador at Ropelet, Marchand Watches, BeeMetics (and pupil) @emily_linscott

Corey begins talking with Mark, Emily’s father, about his career as a commercial and residential AV integrator in the UK (there’s discussion of CEDIA too), which leads up to forming Moose Motorsports (Basildon, Essex) – Motorsport sponsorship acquisition, consultancy and management.

They talk about Emily and forming her racing career when she was 14 years old – in fact, the first person she ever beat in an auto race was her father. And with that, a career began.

Listen to this discussion to hear about Emily’s young auto racing career, some great stories (including one that became an ultimate competition), her fans, a major racing scholarship that she received (the first person outside of the U.S. to receive it), career aspirations, and what it’s like to be behind the wheel of her car on the track at top speeds (and in a Formula 4 car as well).

Sit back, plug in, and listen to this discussion with a remarkable 15-year woman – a professional race car driver – as we live…
