Geddies Ready to Become History Makers
Tuesday 4th October 2011
Aberdeen father and son duo Jim and Glynn Geddie are poised to rewrite history as they gear up for British GT glory.
The pair could become the first father and son partnership to lift the prestigious title since the championship was first launched back in 1993.
The Geddies, who will again compete in their CRS Racing Ferrari 458, hold an eight point lead over title rivals Duncan Cameron and Matt Bell heading into this weekend's season finale at Silverstone.
British GT championship press officer Nick Carter today confirmed the Apex Tubulars backed drivers are in pole position to claim a notable first.
"We've had identical twin brothers David and Godfrey Jones win the British GT title in 2009 when their Ascari came out on top by a single point," said Carter.
"However, Jim and Glynn would be the first father and son pairing to take the championship title if they can get the result they need at Silverstone.
"It would be quite an achievement if they did seal the title but lots of teams remain in contention so we're in for an exciting climax."
Geddie junior today revealed he feels ready for the biggest test of his fledgling career.
The 21-year-old rising star insists he's relishing the Silverstone showdown and remains quietly confident about completing the task.
The Geddies are preparing to go all out to record a vital victory which would guarantee them the points to claim the crown.
"There's no doubt this is the most important race of my career to date," said Geddie.
"But I'm very relaxed about everything and we feel ready and prepared to get the job done.
"Quite clearly there's a lot at stake and I'm not just talking in terms of the championship. Winning the event would definitely help me to further my career in so many different ways.
"It's been great driving with my dad this season. We get on well and have managed to spur each other on in every race.
"It would be fantastic for us both to come out on top. Success always helps to breed further success and securing the British GT championship crown would be a real achievement."
