Glynn Geddie to complete season with Team HARD
Team HARD has announced that former British GT champion Glynn Geddie will return to the BTCC to partner Jack Goff for the remaining two rounds of the 2020 season.
The Scottish driver, who last raced in the series in an AmD-run MG for two rounds in 2018, will take over the Volkswagen CC that has been driven this season by Ollie Brown, Tom Onslow-Cole and Mike Bushell.
Prior to his brief return with AmD, Geddie competed in the series back in 2014 with United Autosports in a Toyota Avensis, with his best result being twelfth place.
“I’m excited to be re-joining the BTCC circus after 18 months away,” he said. “During that time, I’ve done a lot of GT racing in Bentleys and Lamborghinis which are all rear-wheel drive, so I’m under no illusion that the front-wheel drive Volkswagen CC is going to take some getting used to.
“The car has shown flashes of pace this season and I’m sure with the help of Jack and Nic I will be able to get on the pace quickly and help the team secure more points finishes in the CC’s final few events.
“I must say it’s going to be a bit surreal competing in the biggest championship in the country with no fans present, they really help make the BTCC what it is. They will be missed but I’ll be giving it everything to put on a show for them all at home!”
Team boss Tony Gilham said he was pleased to bring Geddie onboard.
“It’s great to have Glynn with us for the remainder of the season. He’s a very fast driver and proved he belongs in the BTCC in both 2014 and 2018,” he said. “Glynn has driven an array of different race cars and has always been on the pace, to be able to adapt to new machines so quickly is a skill that, in my opinion, can’t be taught.
“I actually drove against Glynn in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2008-2010, so we’ve known each other for some time now and have had many battles on track together, which is another reason why I know he’s going to do a great job in the Volkswagen CC.
“Let’s see what Glynn and the team can do in the final six races of the season as we all start looking to a new era for the team in 2021!”
