LOCAL motor racing drivers Glynn Geddie and team-mate James Cole will continue their British Touring Car Championship learning curve at Donington Park this weekend.

The fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the 30-race BTCC will be staged at Donington.

The sweeping eight-corner, 1.96-mile track on the Leicestershire / Derbyshire border will feature three 16-lap races with James Cole and Glynn Geddie looking to clock up more important race mileage in United’s brace of Toyota Avensis.

Glynn said, “It’s very early days in our BTCC programme. It’s a case of keeping our heads down and pushing forward to make the car and engine perform to its
maximum.

“I love Donington and the Toyota should be well suited there. It’s a ‘power’ track so straight line speed is especially important. With each race at Brands Hatch, I became more confident in the Avensis and like myself, with every mile the team learns about the car.”
