Hycolin, is delighted to announce an exciting partnership with British racing driver, Abbie Eaton, to support her as she prepares to compete in the 2021 race season.

Over her time, Abbie has won 2 championships, amassed 25+ wins, 4 pole positions, 18 fastest laps and 42 podiums. Abbie has also recently taken on the role of the ‘Test Driver’ for The Grand Tour on Amazon, alongside Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
After a challenging 2020, in which Abbie worked as a delivery driver to fund her training programme during the ongoing pandemic, with the support of Hycolin Abbie is now focused on working towards competing in the 2021 race season.
Abbie Eaton says, “I’m absolutely thrilled to have the support of Hycolin. As a market-leading brand that also has ambitious goals for future, I couldn’t think of a more perfect partnership.
As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us all extremely hard, and I myself took to working night shifts, delivering goods up to Scotland several times a week to make sure I was able to make enough money to continue training and pushing towards my racing goals in 2021. With the support of Hycolin, I can now focus on looking after my body and making sure I’m fully prepared for the start of the race season.”
Darren Langdon Hycolin Joint MD, said: “We are absolutely in awe of what Abbie has achieved in her career to date and when we heard that she had been working as a delivery driver throughout the pandemic to be able to afford to continue with her training, we knew that we wanted to help.
“We are immensely proud to be in the fortunate position to be able to partner with Abbie and we can’t wait to see her compete later this year.”
