Jim Geddie scores maximum points available at penultimate GT Cup round
Jim Geddie started all three races from second on the grid, hampered only by a Radical sports prototype which was in a class of its own, and therefore ineligible to score championship points. In the first race of the weekend, Jim had to serve an additional 50-seconds during the mandatory pit stop as a result of his previous successes. He was unable to claw back such a huge deficit but finished fourth at the flag.

34 points: that was the amazing tally grabbed by Jon Lancaster in Donington.
The Brit boasted two staggering drives in his home race, clinching a dominating win in the wet in Race 1 (also posting the fastest lap of the race) and getting a great 4th place in Race 2 starting from P8. This allowed him to win the Weekend classification, bringing home the 60.000 euros prize money that comes with 1st place. Doing so, he entered in the same “club” of Giovanni Venturini, Sergei Afanasiev and Luca Filippi.
