Geddie Comes up Short in Snetterton
Sunday 12th August 2012
Glynn Geddie has conceded his chances of catching Michael Meadows at the top of the Porsche Carrera Cup standings are slim.
Geddie was in action at rounds 11 and 12 at Snetterton following the mid-season break hoping to secure precious championship points, but could only muster a sixth and eighth placed finish.
The Apex Tubulars backed ace started eighth and ninth on the grid after qualification on Saturday.
Sunday saw Geddie finish sixth in a controversial first race that involved Jonas Gelzenis taking out Ahmad Al Harthy as he returned to the track following a spin.
Race two saw Geddie cross the line in eighth after Rory Butcher had spun in the penultimate lap.
The result leaves Geddie eighth in the overall standings with 98 points, some way back from Meadows who leads the championship with 211 points, a margin Geddie admits will be difficult to close.
"I knew going into this weekend that I would have to secure a podium finish to give myself any chance of clawing back points," said Geddie.
"I felt like the car was driving well but the races were tight so opportunities to pass were few and far between.
"It's not mathematically impossible to mount a late charge in the championship but I know it's going to be an uphill struggle in the coming weeks."
