Geddie on the Edge of British GT Glory
Wednesday 21st September 2011
Aberdeen race ace Glynn Geddie is gearing up to grab British GT glory at Donington this weekend.
The 21-year-old and his dad Jim will again be behind the wheel of their CRS Racing 458 Ferrari as they look to wrap up the championship title.
The father and son duo will be out to stave off the challenge of Audi R8 LMS duo Matt Bell and Michael Guasch as the season reaches its climax.
With only two meetings left in the series the Geddies are five points clear at the top of the overall standings following an eventful display earlier this month at Rockingham.
After finishing a disappointing 12th in the opening race, due to starting at the back of the pack after missing a pit window, the Geddies rallied to finish in second place in the final race to propel them up the table.
The Aberdeen pair will be conscious of the challenge posed by Bell and Guasch as they mount a challenge for honours.
Geddie junior however, is in confident mood as he tries to go one better following his second place finish in last season's championship to then Trackspeed colleague David Ashburn.
"We're looking to learn from our mistakes at Rockingham by starting well at Donington," said Glynn.
"The second race at Rockingham proved our resilience and has certainly filled us with confidence going into this one.
"We are well placed ahead of our last two races and will do everything we can to have a real go at winning the championship this weekend.
"This season has been character building to say the least although we're now in a very strong position so it's vital we perform to the best of our abilities this weekend."
The Geddies have their final meeting of the British GT Championship at Silverstone at the beginning of next month, while Glynn competes in his final race of the FIA GT3 Championship at Zandvoort on October 16.
