Nathalie McGloin Racing has appointed specialist automotive PR and digital agency, Red Marlin to drive media exposure and sponsorship for its Porsche Club racing driver and inspirational speaker, Nathalie McGloin.
The agreement comes at an exciting time for Nathalie who has just completed her second race season competing as the only female quadriplegic racing driver in the world. Piloting a specially adapted Porsche Cayman S, Nathalie contests the Porsche Club Championship, competing alongside able bodied racing drivers at race tracks across the UK.
Nathalie has also recently been appointed as ambassador and spokesperson for Dare to be Different, an initiative between former F1 racing driver Susie Wolff and the MSA aimed at inspiring females into motorsport.
“When I arrive at a race meet with my wheelchair, a lot of people don’t expect that I’ll be racing so there’s normally a few surprised faces when I get in the car, but when I’m on the track there’s no difference between me and the other competitors, we’re all just racing drivers,” explained Nathalie. “I want to show people that anything is possible, and I hope that when people see me race they’ll be inspired to pursue their own dreams. I’m convinced that Red Marlin’s extensive automotive PR experience will help me to achieve this.”
This November Nathalie will be racing as part of a team in the 1000km Race of Remembrance at Anglesey. In Spring 2017 she will join the first spinal injured team to compete in the 24 hour Silverstone endurance race before beginning her third season contesting the Porsche Club Championship.
“Nathalie is an inspirational and competitive force in the field of motorsport,” comments Danny Rughoobeer, managing director at Red Marlin. “She has some very exciting and ambitious race events coming up and we’re delighted that we will be working with her on these and helping her to achieve her aims.”
The appointment by Nathalie McGloin Racing comes at a period of exciting growth for Red Marlin who has added several other automotive clients to its portfolio in 2016, created two new roles and relocated to larger office premises. The agency offers a range of PR, marketing and digital media services to businesses in the automotive and motorsport industries. Other clients include two classic car auction houses, a major UK insurer and the UK operations of a global tyre manufacturer, among others.
