British GT: Oulton Park Preview
Wednesday 20th April 2011
Aberdeen racing driver Glynn Geddie returns to the track to begin his assault on the British GT 2011 Championship at Oulton Park on Easter Monday.
The 20-year-old will join forces behind the wheel of a Ferrari 430 Scuderia with his dad Jim for this event, while the CRS Racing team waits for the imminent delivery of its Ferrari 458 models.
Geddie is out to claim glory in the highly competitive event after finishing second to then Trackspeed colleague David Ashburn last year.
"There's little doubt I really developed as a driver from competing in the British GT series last season," said Geddie.
"I've also been preparing for the new season with several test days to make sure I've got every possible chance of winning the overall title.
"Finishing second to David Ashburn was a considerable achievement especially when you consider I missed a few of the earlier rounds.
"Had I competed in every race I'd like to think I could have run David all the way for the championship."
The British Racing Drivers' Club Rising Star will also run in the FIA GT3 European Championship with Italian giants AF Corse where he'll test himself against the best, again in a Ferrari 458.
And Geddie, is convinced he can hit new heights by working with CRS Racing and is relishing the prospect of teaming up with his dad on the British GT circuit.
He added: "I'm really up for the challenge of taking things to a new level with CRS Racing this year.
"There's no question working alongside a high profile team like CRS can only help further develop my career on the track.
"I'm also looking forward to working alongside my dad who has already proved to be extremely quick in testing in recent weeks.
"We've always had a very strong relationship and that should help us when it comes to getting things right on the track.
"I've enjoyed my time away from racing during the close season but now feel revitalised and ready for action."
