Geddie Ready for International GT Bow
Thursday 21st July 2011
Aberdeen's Glynn Geddie has landed a guest drive at this weekend's International GT Open.
The 21-year-old will again compete for AF Corse, who he runs with in the FIA GT3 Championships, in a Ferrari 458 at Brands Hatch.
He'll also team up with Dan Brown with the young duo looking to bounce back from a horrific run of bad luck that's blighted their FIA challenge.
The pair were hit by suspension and gear box problems at Paul Ricard in France in their last outing and Geddie is relishing a switch in focus this weekend.
The British Racing Drivers Club Rising Star is out to make a real impact in his debut in the exciting GT Open series.
"It's a great opportunity to test myself against a different field of drivers which will hopefully help me to further develop as a driver," said Glynn.
"Brands Hatch is a circuit I know well and one I feel comfortable at which should help to give me that extra edge.
"I finished third down there just last month when I was competing in the British GT alongside my dad Jim.
"The FIA GT3 drives have proved to be tough going and there just seems to be one thing after another.
"That's extremely frustrating but I'm hoping for a change in fortune at Brands and we really have to be aiming for a win.
"On paper there's no reason why we shouldn't be up there challenging for a place on the podium at the end of the race."
