Frustration for Geddie
Monday 2nd April 2012
Aberdeen racing driver Glynn Geddie suffered a frustrating start to life back in the Porsche Carrera Cup.
The Apex Tubulars backed ace decided to return to the one make championship after a year away in the British GT Championship in a Ferrari 458.
The 21-year-old qualified in seventh for the opening race at Brands Hatch before eventually finishing sixth.
In the second round Geddie, the reigning British GT champion, started eighth on the gird but made an impressive start to quickly manoeuver into fifth place.
However, his solid drive was later overshadowed by a five-second penalty, which left the 21-year-old sliding down to eighth slot.
But Geddie has vowed to kick start his championship charge in rounds three and four at Donington on April 14 and 15.
"It was a frustrating start to life back in the Porsche Carrera Cup," said Glynn.
"However, that's to be expected at the start of a new campaign and the team will be working hard to get everything right for the next race.
"I didn't really struggle going back into a Porsche after competing in a Ferrari last season but it's understandable I might take a few competitive races to get into a groove.
"Last year in the British GT we were slow starters at the beginning but there's plenty of time and races to get it right on the track."
Geddie returns to Porsche Carrera Cup action at Donington on April 14 and 15.
