Superb P1 and P3 for Abbie Eaton @ Silverstone; GT Cup

From Abbie Eaton:

“Qualified P4 today on a damp Silverstone GP.

A few fairly big changes were made to the car for Race 1 so it would take a couple of laps to settle into the new changes. I finished 3rd, 0.2 seconds from 2nd place but I felt very confident with the car and the changes that had been made put me in good stead for Race 2.

In Race 2 I made some decisive overtakes on the first couple of laps and took the lead of the GTB class and was chasing down the GTC Lotus. After pulling a 10 second gap to 2nd placed GTB car I decided to make sure to bring the car home safe and managed to secure my first GT Cup win & another fastest lap!


A long time coming after a very tough start of the season with things out of my control but what a great feeling to finally have a car underneath me that I can work with. Big thank you to the Geoff Steel boys, my sponsors Oughtred & Harrsion, Sental Recruitment & Mike @ Westfield Homebuyers who made sure I was able to race this weekend and also a special thank you to Mick & Ellie at Southern Waste Management for making sure I had some fresh boots on the car! – I wouldn’t have had such good results without your help! & Of course not forgetting my friends and family for the support that’s always there xxx

Fingers crossed I can make it out again at Snetterton in 6 weeks!”
