Eaton to test for MSR at Queensland Raceway

Matt Stone Racing has confirmed The Grand Tour cast member and British GT Champion Abbie Eaton will test with the team.

MSR has confirmed the Super2 test with Ms Eaton’s Australian Manager and will welcome her to Queensland Raceway in December 2018.

Ms Eaton announced her Australian visit and Supercars driving ambitions on Speedcafe earlier this month.

Team Principal Matt Stone said he was delighted to deliver a Super2 test for Abbie whilst in Australia.

“Abbie has a fine racing pedigree, highlighted by her recent Blancpain GT Endurance Series win,” Stone said.

“We believe she has the commitment to succeed at Super2 level and work her way into the main game.

“Apparently driving a Supercar has always been on her bucket list and she’s been working the simulator hard back in England.

“But there’s nothing like the real thing and we can’t wait to see how she goes.

“In a perfect world, we’d love to offer her a full-time drive next year in Super2 and we’re currently talking to many parties about how we might make that happen.

“The prospect of having a driver of this quality and international profile is a very exciting one for MSR.”

Eaton will arrive in Australia on 24 November and will be attending the Coates Hire Newcastle 500.
