LOCAL motor racing star Glynn Geddie clocked up more valuable miles for United Autosports in their debut British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park last weekend.
With testing now severely restricted, Glynn Geddie, team-mate James Cole plus BTCC newcomers United Autosports, each have to use race meetings as glorified tests.
Geddie ran just outside the top-10 in only his second BTCC event before a gearbox gremlin side-lined him in race three while team-mate Cole wrote off his Toyota in the day’s second race when he became an innocent victim in someone else’s accident.
Commenting after the races, Glynn said, “At times today we had a ‘raceable’ car which means we’re making progress which at this stage in the car’s development is all that can be asked for. I expected more from race two but having to go out on unscrubbed new wets meant it going to be difficult then in the last race I suffered a gear selection issue causing my retirement. I really felt a top-10 result was on the cards for us in that race but we showed some promise.”
