A University of Lincoln student, who has been invited to spend more than just one day at the races, is in gear and raring to go.
Kirsty Emery, a Psychology and Public Relations student at the university’s Brayford campus, has manoeuvred herself into a superb position with Racing Lines International, a public relations company for the motor racing industry.
After sending out over 100 letters and 200 emails to PR and promotional companies in the motor sport directory, Kirsty was offered a work experience placement by Noel Bradford, the founder of Racing Lines International.
Kirsty (20), from Pinchbeck, has been allocated coverage of the Formula 3 races and has already written her first press release, from Donington Park, which can be seen on the Racing Lines website www.racinglines.com.
“It was a marvellous experience,” said Kirsty. “I viewed the race from the media centre at Donington Park and interviewed the drivers after the race.
“I come from a family of motor sport enthusiasts,” she added. “Being able to combine my hobby with work is wonderful and I am so grateful to Noel for this marvellous opportunity.”
Kirsty’s next big races will be at Silverstone over the next Bank Holiday weekend and the Formula 3 non-championship Grand Prix support race in July.
“If I enjoy the experience and Noel is pleased with my work, there may be an opportunity for a permanent job,” continued Kirsty. “If that happens, juggling course work, a part time job and work experience will have been worth it.”
