It was mixed feelings for Glynn Geddie this weekend as he came away from Brands Hatch third in the championship after finishing both races in fourth position.
“It’s definitely good from the championship point of view that we came away with two strong points finishes. The conditions out there were really difficult and visibility was almost non-existent.” Geddie said talking on his website www.glynngeddie.com.
In race one Geddie was penalised after a coming together with Tom Bradshaw at Surtees. “It was an unfortunate incident with Tom in Race 1.” Geddie said “I saw the gap going into Surtees and I was already committed to the move before the door was closed, but by then I couldn’t get the car stopped in time and we touched.”
Race two would see Geddie challenge Harvey for the lead before his tyres went off leaving him lacking in pace. “I was disappointed not to be able to keep challenging for the lead with Harvey and Caine in Race 2 as my tyres were going off and I was losing grip all the time – especially towards the end of the race when a dry line started to appear. From there I just had to drive conservatively and keep the tyres in one piece to the end. Not the result we wanted but on reflection the results benefitted our championship position.”
