Abbie Eaton to drive second Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY VIP car in Diriyah

Abbie Eaton will drive the second VIP car in the opening weekend of Season 2 of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

Known for her role as the official racing driver of Amazon Prime's 'The Grand Tour', Eaton holds over 17 years of motor racing experience, having competed in various series including the Blancpain Endurance, British GT and GT Cup championships.

Crowned as the 2017 Champion in the Blancpain Endurance Series Ferrari 488 GT3, Eaton has gone on to take four wins in the GT Cup Ferrari 488 Challenge and has most recently raced in the Australian Super2 Series.

"I am excited to be racing in the first round of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY in Saudi," she said. 

"The Riyadh track looks challenging and technical and I’ve heard fantastic things about the Jaguar I-PACE too!

"It’ll be a first for me racing a fully electric racing car so thank you to Jaguar Racing for the opportunity."

Eaton will be joined by Saudi racer Reema Juffali who will pilot the second VIP car in Diriyah, making history in the process by becoming the first woman to compete in an international race in her home country.

Season 2 of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will commence this week on November 22 and 23 with a double-header round in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
