STP's Corse Ferrari F458 Duo Prep for Slovakian GT3 Championship

With the 4th place finish at the International GT Open race at Brands Hatch and their STP AF Corse Ferrari F458 cars purring like kittens, Britain hopes are placed on Daniel Brown and Glynn Geddie, as they are confident of maintaining their form at the Slovakia Ring GT3 Championship race meeting this coming weekend.

So far this year, their GT3 activities have been hit with mechanical issues that have hampered their progress.

When the car has been performing correctly, their speed and racecraft has been proved emphatically, as at Brands Hatch, and at the British round of the GT3 series at Silverstone, when Brown was shaping up for a podium position only to suffer disappointment as the car failed to restart at the routine handover to Geddie.

“The new Slovakia Ring race circuit is an unknown quantity but it has some interesting features and should suit us and the car. I’m looking forward to it, and to Glynn and I maintaining our good form from our last race,” commented Daniel Brown.

Last month, BRDC Rising Stars, 20-year old Dan Brown and Glynn Geddie (21), proved their speed and true mettle by taking a classy GT3 victory and fourth overall in a one-off International GT Open appearance at Brands Hatch on Saturday.

From a third place GT3 class qualifying slot and tenth overall - including a 15-second new entrant penalty - the young British duo powered their regular STP AF Corse Ferrari 458 up the field, to within seven seconds of the outright GTS winner, to claim the GT3 class win after 46 laps of the 2.3 mile GP circuit.
