Porsche Carrera Cup GB runner and reigning British GT champion Glynn Geddie is to line up for the prestigious Monaco race of the Porsche Supercup this weekend, revisiting the event he contested in 2009.

Then just 18 Geddie the Aberdeen based driver finished 15th, and he returns to the principality with three years more experience and a championship title under his belt to try and prove his worth against the big names – the regulars in the Porsche Supercup.

Geddie will race the same Redline Racing Porsche he drives in the UK series, in which he recorded his best finish of the year so far in the second race of the Thruxton weekend coming home second in the wet.

“There's no doubt the Supercup is a real step up in class and it will be tough coming up against the various top factory drivers,” said Geddie. “But I have developed a lot since my last outing at Monaco and feel far more prepared for it second time round.”

“I was extremely fortunate enough to take part in the event back in 2009 and intend to make the most of my second chance out there. The track is really tight and compact so it's vital I'm on top of everything quickly, find my lines as soon as possible and really make a go of it.”

The series supports F1 in its European races – the only tin-top series to appear on the F1 bill. The 2012 season started with two races in Bahrain before the first European race, intended for the Spanish Grand Prix weekend at Barcelona was cancelled due to safety concerns.  

As well as this weekend in Monte Carlo Geddie is expected to join the Supercup paddock for three further rounds – his home race of Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and another, as yet unconfirmed, event.
