Geddie to return to the BTCC for Team HARD

The 2011 British GT champion will make a return to the British Touring Car Championship for Team HARD since his last participation in 2018.

Glynn Geddie formerly contested his BTCC debut in the 2014 season for United Autosports, and later took part in ten selected rounds in 2018.

“I’m excited to be re-joining the BTCC circus after 18 months away,” after scoring seven out of 10 points finishes in 2018.

He will be joining Jack Goff to the end of the current season in the other VW CC, in which Onslow-Cole and Mike Bushell recently spent their time in.

The CC will be retired at the end of this season having been in the BTCC for eight years to be replaced by Cupra.

“During that time (not being in the BTCC), 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,” he says with full intentions to work with Jack Goff and Nic Hamilton to secure more points finishes.

Tony Gilham, Managing Director of Team HARD Racing said: “It’s great to have Glynn with us for the remainder of the season.

“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!”
