Geddie Excited Ahead of Home Race

30 May, 2011

Aberdeen racing driver Glynn Geddie is looking forward to his home race for Rounds 3 and 4 of the FIA GT3 European Championship at Silverstone this coming weekend.

The BRDC Rising Star, and co-driver Dan Brown, will be looking for a strong result in their Apex Tubulars and STP-backed AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia after enduring a character-building season opener at Portimao, Portugal at the beginning of the May.

In Round 1 at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve the pair managed to bring the car home in P8, despite being faced with a series of mechanical problems which hampered their performance, but were forced to retire in Round 2, with only 20-minutes of the race to go.

However, this weekend will see Geddie and Brown launch a challenge to make up for lost ground at Portugal and give their home fans something to cheer about.

Glynn Geddie:
"I'm really excited ahead of Silverstone and everyone is keen to show what we can do, so in a way our season starts now. It's a circuit I really enjoy driving and I'll have a lot of home support in the shape of friends, family and my sponsors, so hopefully we'll put on a good show for everyone and bring home two solid results.

"Portimao was a frustrating weekend and neither Dan nor myself knew the circuit before we arrived there, but we both are very familiar with Silverstone and I tend to run well there, which should put us in good stead against our rivals.

"You never know what you will be faced with in motorsport but I think as long as the car doesn't have any major problems, we will have a strong package and be in with a decent shot of a strong result."
