Geddie Set for Daytona 24hr Challenge
Wednesday 29th December 2010
Aberdeen's Glynn Geddie has secured an exclusive deal to compete in the world famous Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race in January.
The BRDC Rising Star will head Primus Racing's assault on the annual race, joining Italian Alessandro Cicognani and American brothers Chapman and David Ducote, in a Crawford-Chevrolet Daytona Prototype.
Geddie, who aided co-driver David Ashburn in his bid to lift the British GT Championship and who was a regular front runner in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2010, will make his debut trans-Atlantic race appearance at the prestigious event, and will be a welcome and valued addition to the Primus Racing line-up ahead of his first test with the team next month.
"This is an amazing opportunity for me and one which I aim to exploit to its full potential. Racing at the Daytona 24 Hours is a goal I've had my eyes firmly set on for a long time, and could open up so many more global opportunities for me and my sponsors, who have been massively instrumental in making this possible.
"Racing in America has always appealed to me so racing under the renowned Primus Racing umbrella will provide the perfect platform for me to further my goals beyond this race.
"For now though we must focus on this race and do the best job possible for everyone involved. I can't wait to get out there and test the car in December but I'm confident that it won't take me long to adapt to driving a prototype. There will be some tough competition so we just need to get our heads down and work as hard as possible to be in good stead for the race."
