Aberdeen race ace Glynn Geddie today admitted he's finding it tough having to make up for lost time as he prepares for only the third meeting of the season.
The 21-year-old has struggled in the opening rounds Porsche Carrera Cup rounds at Brands Hatch and Donington as he languishes in seventh spot in the standings.
But the Redline Racing driver, who tasted British GT glory in 2011, feels ready to kick start his championship charge during rounds five at six at Thruxton this weekend.
"This is perhaps one of the toughest times of my racing career to date," said Geddie.
"I have been used to success, maybe too used to it so this is something of a reality check for me.
"However, last season in the British GT Championship I got off to a sluggish start before coming good in the end.
"Hopefully that will be the case this season too but I need to make a positive impact starting at Thruxton this weekend."
Geddie eventually finished sixth and then eighth in the opening weekend of the championship at Brands Hatch.
Despite working hard on the track in a bid to improve on those initial results his Donington display wasn't much better where he limped home to eighth and then ninth placed finishes.
He added: "I'm really psyched up for Thruxton and despite an indifferent start feel confident I can succeed.
"I'll be pushing myself and the car as hard as I can to record vital championship points."
