"Being in the limelight with The Grand Tour, people are just expecting you to jump into any car and be quick straight away, so it's a different kind of pressure. But ultimately if I don't say yes to these things, I'm not going to be racing which is what I love and what I want to do."
For Abbie Eaton, the past few years have been something of a rollercoaster both on and off the circuit. The 28-year-old Briton has gained a public profile for her role on Amazon's The Grand Tour as the show's official test driver. But it's on the world's race circuits where she wants her reputation to continue growing and make good on the promise she showed in club racing more than a decade ago.
She first came to prominence in 2009 after following her father, Paul, into motorsport, winning her class in the Dunlop Sport Maxx Cup.
