DRIVERS: GEORGE EATON

Name: George Eaton
Nationality: Canada
Date of birth: November 12, 1945 - Toronto

Blond, baby-faced heir to a Canadian department store fortune, Eaton produced promising results in Can-Am and Formula A, and was invited to race the works BRM for the final two Gran Prix of 1969. He stayed with BRM for the entire 1970 season, renting a third seat, but the arrangement left both parties dissapointed. Essentially a well-heeled amateur, Eaton also had some outings in the ill-starred BRM P54 Group 7 sports car and retired from the sport shortly after.
