Aberdeen racing driver Glynn Geddie will return to his racing roots by competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup during the 2012 season.
The 21-year-old, who secured British GT glory in a Ferrari 458 with his dad Jim last season, will run with the Redline racing team in the highly competitive championship.
Geddie junior also has his sights set on breaking into the Porsche Supercup championship in 2013, a prestigious series which supports the Formula One races.
The Apex-backed Aberdonian first took part in the Porsche Carrera Cup as a 17-year-old rookie before going on to enjoy Pro-Am 1 and Pro-Am 2 success in the event by coming out on top in 2008 and 2009.
"Returning to Porsche Carrera Cup is a logical step for me in my long term development as a driver," said Glynn.
"If I can win a one make championship it will help me to further progress my career and will hopefully pave the way for me to break into the Supercup.
"Competing in the Supercup has always been a real ambition of mine and now it seems like an achievable target.
"In my last tilt at the Carrera Cup in 2010 I finished fourth in the professional category so feel like there's a bit of unfinished business there too.
"As much as I loved driving alongside my dad in the British GT I'm excited about branching out on my own again in a bid to really make my mark in the sport.
"After a season in a Ferrari it will be good to get back behind the wheel of a Porsche although who knows dad I might yet end up competing in another championship as well."
