Glynn Geddie has signed up to join United Autosports for the remainder of the 2013 British GT Championship. He will join the team for round four at Snetterton (15th/16th June) and compete in the rest of the season with them.
Glynn will partner Jody Firth in the #24 McLaren MP4-12C GT3, hoping to be able to challenge for the lead in the upcoming races.
This is not the first time he has taken part in the 2013 British GT season with United Autosports. He stood in for Rob Bell during the season opener at Oulton Park, impressing with a near podium finish, until a gearbox failure put him and team mate, Zak Brown, out of the race. He also competed in and won the 2011 British GT Championship with his father, Jim Geddie, in their Ferrari 458.
The fast paced Scot will compete in the British GT Championship alongside his commitment to the European Supercar Challenge in which he races with UnitedAutosports and his father Jim. They are currently leading the championship after three rounds.
Richard Dean, United Autosports, Team Owner and Managing Director:
“We are really pleased to have Glynn join us for the rest of the 2013 season inBritish GT. He has shown his commitment and passion for GT racing since running with us in the European Supercar Challenge and during the first round of the British GT Championship at Oulton Park. I’d like to welcome him to the team and we look forward to working with him for the rest of the season.”
Glynn Geddie, United Autosports, Driver:
“I am thrilled to be joining United Autosports for the last half of the 2013 season. I already know how professional and well run the team is from the work I do with them at the European Supercar Challenge rounds, so agreeing to join them for another championship was a no brainer. I’m looking forward to partnering Jody Firth and can’t wait to get behind the wheel of another McLaren.”
