Donington Delight for the Geddies
Monday 26th September 2011
Glynn Geddie continued his British GT Championship charge with a stirring Donington display.
The 21-year-old partnered his dad Jim in their CRS Racing Ferrari 458 as they sealed a solid fifth placed finish.
That result helped the father and son duo to extend their championship lead to eight points over the Ferrari 458 of Duncan Cameron and Matt Griffin.
An indifferent qualifying session left the father and son partnership starting sixth on the grid ahead of the crunch three hour race but they recovered in style.
The Geddie duo were again forced to run with a weight ballast as well as dealing with two time penalties which makes their result all the more impressive.
The result sets them up perfectly for an end of season showdown at Silverstone on Saturday October 8 in the final race of the British GT season.
"I'm satisfied with our weekend's work at Donington and we can now really look forward to Silverstone," said Glynn.
"We're now in a very strong position but there's still a lot of work to be done before we can seal the title.
"We could have won the championship at Donington had results gone our way but it wasn't to be although we have to be pleased that we stretched our lead.
"But we're happy with the way the car is running after a lot of hard work from the CRS Racing team during the course of the season so we're confident of finishing the job.
"However, we must ensure we remain as professional as ever to give ourselves every chance of succeeding.
"We'll work alongside the team to make sure we are prepared as possible for the final finale before yet another season comes to an end."
