Glynn Geddie Happy With First Podium Of 2010

1 Mins read

Glynn Geddie secured his first podium of the year this weekend as the Porsche Carrera Cup GB rolled in to Rockingham.

Before the weekend he said that he was looking to gain his first podium of the year. “We want to come away with two podiums this weekend, Rockingham isn’t exactly one of my favourite tracks and we had our problems there last year but we need to bounce back from Thruxton, which wasn’t a disaster, but could have been better.”

After being blocked in qualifying Geddie had to settle for seventh and eighth places on the grid. Race one saw him push Tom Bradshaw hard throughout the race, before Bradshaw crashed out on the high speed Turn 1 after being hit with a puncture. This released Geddie to chase down Tony Gilham. With Gilham on fresh tyres Geddie was left to finish in sixth.

“The whole team have struggled this weekend on the new compounds that Michelin have introduced for this year and in both races the tyres really started to go off towards the closing stages. In Race 1 there was no chance of catching Tony (Gilham) as he started the race on a fresh set, and Bradshaw kept blocking me before that, even though I feel I had more pace than him.” said Geddie.

Race two saw him get a great start, making up one place before Turn 1. As the cars came in to Deene, Hankey spun giving Geddie the opportunity to slot in to third place behind Tim Harvey and Michael Caine. With the attacking done, Geddie switched to defence with Stephen Jelley and Ollie Jackson pushing the young Scot. Despite the pressure Geddie kept his position and joined the podium for the first time this year.

Geddie was pleased with his second race of the weekend: “Race 2 was mad at the start and it was all going on with tyre smoke everywhere but I kept my head down and stayed out of trouble. From then on it was a case of focusing on what I needed to do for my race so I’m delighted to be back on the podium and score a few more points but there will be more to come I’m sure!”
