Emma Gilmour on representing McLaren as a New Zealander and driving one of the world's rarest cars

Season 2, Episode 4,  Aug 03, 07:06 AM

If you had told Emma Gilmour a year ago that she would be driving for the outfit that bears the name of New Zealand automotive royalty, she'd almost have certainly not believed you.

But now, Emma is part of an elite line up of drivers at the Woking based squad, representing one of the biggest shifts in diversity in motorsport, by being the first female driver to drive for McLaren, whilst repping the New Zealand flag.

Emma sat down with James at the MTC, and more recently online, to talk about her motorsport journey so far, driving at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and not opening her eyes when in a crash.
