A third and sixth position in the two Avon Tyres British GT races at Spa-Francorchamps moved father and son CRS Racing drivers Jim and Glynn Geddie to within two points of the championship lead.
The pair continue to show form in the Ferrari 458 GT3, which they first ran at Snetterton in May. Jim Geddie, in particular showed good pace at the start of the first race, moving up to fifth place after starting eighth, before handing over to the younger Geddie around the halfway point of the hour long race.
Glynn continued the forward progress, claiming the lowest step on the podium to match their result in the previous round at Brands Hatch.
The duo, who raced laden with ballast after successive podiums before the series travelled to Belgium, finished sixth in the second race, Jim slipping back behind the United Autosports' Audi of Michael Guasch and Matt Bell on the final lap. The Anglo-American squad continue to lead the drivers' points, but only by two points due to the Geddie's race one result.
“I’m reasonably satisfied with our performance at the weekend and it’s been good to close in on the leaders,” said Glynn. “We had a few issues with our tyres in qualifying which hampered our performance but to secure a podium place whilst racing with a hefty weight penalty is very encouraging.”
The 21-year-old's next drive will come in the FIA GT3 European Championship, as the British GT Championship takes a break, returning to action at Rockingham in September.
“The break will give us additional time to work on further fine tuning certain issues as we look to perfect the car so we’re in a really strong position to mount a serious title challenge,” Glynn said. “Even the smallest adjustments margins can make a huge difference when it comes to any race car and the CRS Racing team engineers have been fantastic all season.”
“Hopefully that extra work will give us an additional edge over the field and had things turned out slightly different in a few of the earlier rounds we might even have been leading the overall British GT championship now.”
