The CRS Racing father/son pairing celebrate an unexpected pole position at Snetterton

The Geddie's will be hoping for more celebrations at Silverstone in October with the title on the line

THE father/son Geddie pairing are well placed for title glory at Silverstone next month after a fifth place finish at Donington Park saw them extend their championship lead over their rivals.

Glynn Geddie and father Jim finished fifth with their CRS teammates Andrew Tate and Alex Mortimer forced to retire after a trip to the gravel which brought the safety car out.

But Geddie is optimistic that with the limited success ballast and being in pole position in the driver standings they can make their title dream a reality at Silverstone.

Geddie narrowly missed out last year finishing second to then teammate David Ashburn in the Trackspeed Porsche and is hoping to go one better next month.

He said: “I’m satisfied with our weekend’s work at Donington and we can now really look forward to Silverstone.

“We’re now in a very strong position but there’s still a lot of work to be done before we can seal the title. We could have won the championship at Donington had results gone our way but it wasn’t to be although we have to be pleased that we stretched our lead.

But we’re happy with the way the car is running after a lot of hard work from the CRS Racing team during the course of the season so we’re confident of finishing the job.

“However, we must ensure we remain as professional as ever to give ourselves every chance of succeeding. We’ll work alongside the team to make sure we are prepared as possible for the finale before yet another season comes to an end.”
