Geddies Join Forces with CRS Racing for British GT
Wednesday 16th February 2011
Abderdeen racing driver Glynn Geddie will join forces with his dad Jim for his latest assault on the British GT Championship.
The father and son duo will team up for the first time to compete together in an overall event, although they have raced as a pair in one off races.
The Geddie double act have agreed a deal with 2008 British GT teams' champions, CRS Racing, that will see them drive a Ferrari 458 GT3 in the endurance championship.
They've been impressed with the CRS team, founded by Scotsman Andrew Kirkaldy, as they gear up for a new challenge away from the Porsche Carrera Cup.
And Glynn, backed by Apex Tubulars, CorDEX Instruments and Allseas Global Logistics, will be going flat out to go one better than last season when he finished second in the standings to Trackspeed co-driver David Ashburn.
"British GT racing was a huge learning curve for me last season, although I'm still pleased to have finished second.
"Had I not missed a few of the earlier rounds then I'd like to think that I could have mounted a strong challenge to my, then co-driver David, for the overall title.
"However, this season I'm better prepared and more equipped for the challenge so I'm really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel again.
"There's obviously a new twist on things now as I'll be teaming up with my dad but we have a strong relationship and I'm relishing the opportunity to drive with him - we've got similar views on racing which helps.
"Competing in a Ferrari over in Daytona at the Rolex 24 Hour Challenge also gives me a strong advantage as I'll be able to get to grips with the car quickly."
Glynn and Jim head to Silverstone next month for a test day before the series officially starts on April 23 at Oulton Park.
