Glynn Geddies is hoping for continued improvement at Rockingham this weekend.

United Autosports are looking to continue their progress in British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham this Sunday, September 7.

Local driver Glynn Geddie achieved the team’s best grid start in qualifying and went on to comfortably run inside the top-10 before, once again, his Toyota was unceremoniously hit up the rear and losing a potential top-eight race result.

Geddie and team-mate James Cole, the latter cruelly blighted with engine issues in Knockhill’s three races, are eager to reward the team with some top results.

Glynn said, “Rockingham is a very different track from the others we race on the BTCC with is banked corners. I have had a lot of good results in the past there racing Porsches and in the British GT Championship. Knockhill showed we’re making steps forward but we still have a long way to go.

“We must aim at the top-10 in qualifying but also work needs to be done on our race pace. We are fast for 10-15 laps in a race but then suffer a huge performance drop off with our tyres. That said, Rockingham is hard on tyres so we need to do a lot of work in the free practice sessions.”
