Testing time for Geddie at Donington
Tuesday 17th April 2012
Aberdeen's Glynn Geddie endured a frustrating weekend in the Porsche Carrera Cup at Donington.
The racing driver was hoping to kick-start his campaign following a disappointing opening championship weekend at Brands Hatch.
This was only Geddie's third and fourth race back in the one-make championship following a year away in the British GT championship in a Ferrari 458.
The 21-year-old, who is running with Redline Racing this season, qualified for the opening race in seventh before eventually finishing ninth.
In the second round Geddie started eighth on the grid and following a positive start had moved up to seventh place by lap six.
However Geddie's Porsche lost pace in the latter stages of the race following a mechanical problem and this resulted in an eighth place finish.
But the Aberdeen ace believes persistence is the key to turning his campaign around at rounds five and six at Thruxton on April 28 and 29.
"It was challenging weekend and a few mistakes were made particularly in the first race which was frustrating.
"Our setup was better in the second race and I was happier with the pace I was setting before a disappointing finish."
"It was always bound to take a bit of time to adjust being back in a Porsche but I feel like I am improving with every race.
"We will continue to work hard with the car and I'm looking onwards and upwards now and will be targeting success at Thruxton at the end of the month."
