MOTOR SPORT: A special film has been released to celebrate the continued partnership between Alex Brundle and Adrian Flux for the coming season.

The cinematic 16-minute piece focuses on Brundle’s passion for the classic cars he raced while being sponsored by the West Norfolk insurance broker last year. 

That relationship has been extended into 2021 with the globally recognised British driver and motorsport commentator set to share more of his career and insights with the company that has offices in East Winch and Norwich. 

The 30-year-old, born and raised less than 10 miles from Adrian Flux’s head office near King’s Lynn, got behind the wheel of some iconic vehicles in 2020. 

Three cars – the Lola T70, Jaguar D-type and Jaguar E-type – feature in the video shot at several of the UK’s greatest motorsport venues.

“I wanted to capture the journey, from the moment you step out of a modern racer and into classic competition. Not in terms of the specifics, but the feeling and challenge of trying to achieve that,” said Brundle, who completed his seventh Le Mans 24 and became European Le Mans Series vice champion for United Autosports last season.

“I am incredibly grateful for the chance to continue experiencing the cars and the respectful, but fierce, competition. I just love working with Adrian Flux’s tremendous media team to communicate my passion for racing in any era and connecting with people who share that passion with me through all their publications and media channels.”

Brundle, the son of Formula 1 driver-turned-commentator Martin, also got behind the mic for F1 TV where he covered the 2020 Formula 2 campaign.

His articulate analysis shines throughout the film that shows footage of United Autosports’ headquarters as well as behind-the-scenes, in-car and race footage from his classic sports car victory on his debut at the Brands Hatch Historic Festival.

Brundle said: “This video documents the first ‘baby steps’ into an environment where really interesting people race incredible historic cars, very fast indeed. Alongside my day job in the world’s best modern sports car races, I’m excited to continue and I can’t wait for what 2021 will bring.”

Adrian Flux general manager Gerry Bucke said: “It was great working with Alex throughout 2020, even if it was a very different year to the one we’d expected.

“Releasing this film coincides with the announcement that we will be working with Alex again in 2021 and we can’t wait to see what this brings. Alex represents himself, his family name and the brand so well and it’s a nice little touch that he’s doing that having grown up so close to our head office.”

The partnership continues Adrian Flux’s ongoing desire to support motorsport and the classic car market.
