Avon Tyres champions honoured

The 2011 Avon Tyres British GT Champions, Jim and Glynn Geddie, were honoured at the SRO awards evening in Oxfordshire recently.
Aberdeen duo, Jim and Glynn Geddie, became the first father-and-son pairing to clinch the Avon Tyres British GT Championship title. Their third-place finish at Silverstone, the final round of the season, was enough to protect their advantage in the points.
The average entry for British GT events this season was 27 cars, with a high of 31 at Brands Hatch and Silverstone. Among the exciting models making their debut on the grid this year were the Mercedes SLS, Ferrari 458, while the new-for-2011 McLaren MP4-12C made a guest appearance too.
Glynn Geddie said, “In an ideal world, we would have loved to have gone out and won our final race of the season but third was enough for us to take the title. This victory should now create new opportunities for me in the seasons ahead, but I need to plan carefully for my future. I’m willing to consider any suitable offers but I’d like to think I’ll be back in British GT alongside dad as defending champion.”
