Geddie Sets Sights on Donington Delight
Wednesday 11th April 2012
Aberdeen motor racing driver Glynn Geddie is out to claim some Donington delight to fire up his Porsche Carrera Cup charge.
The 21-year-old, who is running with Redline Racing this season, is ready to put a disappointing opening championship weekend at Brands Hatch behind him when he returns to action this weekend.
Geddie, who finished sixth and eighth at Brands, is confident of mounting a serious challenge for a podium place during rounds three and four of the event.
"I struggled with a few inevitable teething problems during the first race so the team has been working hard to resolve them," he said.
"I've been back in the car during a recent scheduled testing session at Thruxton and I was happier with my times there.
"Now I have to concentrate on reproducing that form when it really matters in a competitive race environment.
"It would have been nice to have started the new season on a real high but the initial early setback has given me additional motivation to really push on."
Geddie, the 2011 British GT champion in a Ferrari 458, knows he's under pressure to succeed this season if he is to fulfil his Porsche Supercup ambitions.
He added: "There's no doubt the Carrera Cup holds the key to future success and could also create opportunities if I was to impress.
"So now is the time to kick on and maintain a level of consistency before looking to mount a sustained challenge."
