Thrills and Spills at Knockhill but No Points for Geddie
Sunday 26th August 2012
Glynn Geddie's 2012 woes continued at an incident packed Knockhill stage of the Porsche Carrera Cup.
The 22-year old was in action in rounds 13 and 14 but an eventful day saw Geddie leave empty handed.
The Redline Racer has struggled to repeat the form that saw him achieve British GT success last season and Knockhill was no different.
After qualifying eighth on the grid for both races, Geddie was hoping to secure some precious championship points starting in race one.
Despite a solid drive from the Aberdonian, the race came to a premature end five laps from the finish after a collision between Rory Butcher and Richard Plant resulted in a red flag.
A five second penalty added further insult to injury for Geddie, who slipped back to 10th in the final standings.
Race two then went from bad to worse.
Half way through lap one saw Geddie collide with Andy Merrick, leaving his Porsche with a badly damaged rear bumper.
Despite re-entering the race Geddie was given another five second penalty for exceeding track limits and retired on lap 14.
Geddie was disappointed not to have made more of the only Scottish leg of the Carrera Cup campaign.
"It was one of the most frustrating weekend's I've had in the Carrera Cup.
"The track was difficult for most of us as you could tell from the number of collisions, so it made driving condition extremely tricky.
"I was really hoping to take advantage of home support this weekend in front of an amazing crowd but what's done is done."
