Monaco Mission Ends in Disappointment for Geddie
Monday 28th May 2012
Aberdeen's Glynn Geddie today said he hoped to learn from his Monaco misfortune in the Porsche Supercup.
The 21-year-old was taking part in the first of four rounds of the prestigious event he will be competing in this season.
Geddie was returning to Monaco having first competed there in the Supercup, aged just 18. However he couldn't improve on his 15thplace finish back then, this time labouring to 22nd.
The Redline racer's weekend got off to a disappointing start when he qualified in 24th position.
Geddie had a race of mixed fortunes when he manoeuvred his way into 17th position and looked ready to make a move further up the field.
However a puncture with only two laps remaining put an end to any hopes Geddie had and saw him fall back to cross the finishing line in a disappointing finish.
The race was eventually won by Englishman Sean Edwards.
Despite a frustrating weekend Geddie is keen to learn from his mistakes and is remaining positive ahead of his forthcoming races back on home soil.
"Racing on a tight, compact European track like this one in Monaco is a great test to see how far you have come.
"Being involved in the Supercup is always a great experience and it's important that you learn as much as you can from these kinds of races.
"I feel I am a far more mature racer than I was when I competed here three years ago and a lot of that is down to building up experience.
"It's frustrating that the weekend didn't materialise as I had hoped but I just need to turn my focus to getting my Porsche Carrera Cup season back on track starting at Oulton Park in two weeks' time."
