Glynn Geddie To Take On The Rolex 24

1 Mins read

Glynn Geddie will take his place alongside some of the most famous names in motorsport at the prestigious Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in January.

The Aberdeen racer split his 2010 season between campaigns in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and the British GT Championship where he finished as runner-up to his teammate David Ashburn. Now an exclusive deal means he will start the new year as part of Primus Racing's assault on the famous endurance race.

He will drive a Crawford-Chevrolet in the Daytona Prototype alongside Chapman and David Ducote – both should be familiar names to be both Grand-Am and American Le Mans Series followers -and Italian Alessandro Cicognani.

“This is an amazing opportunity for me and one which I aim to exploit to its full potential,” said Geddie. “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.”

The event will be Geddie's first racing appearance in the US, but he is scheduled to join the team for a number of test sessions before the 24.
