Geddies at the Ready for Snetterton
Thursday 12th May 2011
Glynn Geddie returns to British GT duty this weekend aiming to kick his season into top gear.
The 20-year-old will again partner his dad Jim under the CRS Racing banner at Snetterton for the third round of the championship.
The father and son duo produced a solid start to their title bid finishing eighth and sixth in the opening rounds at Oulton Park to register their first points of the 2011 season.
The Geddie duo started their British GT bid in a Ferrari 430 GT3 but will be back behind the wheel of a more familiar 458 for the Snetterton meeting.
Glynn is looking to bounce back after a frustrating FIA GT3 European debut in Portugal last weekend where mechanical problems forced him to retire early in the second race.
"There's little doubt competing in the FIA GT3 Championship will prove to be a huge learning curve for me this season," Glynn said.
"I couldn't even legislate or predict the sort of problems we encountered in the Algarve but it's a part of the sport you've just got to accept.
"That's in the past now and it's time to focus on the future. I've got far more British GT experience after finishing second overall to David Ashburn last season and it will be good to return to familiar territory this weekend.
"I'm really pleased we'll be competing in a Ferrari 458 as CRS had been waiting on delivery ahead of the first weekend at Oulton Park forcing us to start the series in a 430 model which was far from ideal.
"But we still produced a solid drive in the first rounds in an unfamiliar car so we've now got to look to build on that starting at Snetterton this weekend.
"I'm again looking forward to teaming up with my dad and our partnership is quickly developing all the time. We've got a good understanding so it's good to be working closely with him."
