One of the UK’s leading motor insurance brokers Adrian Flux, has become the latest organisation to pledge its support of Team BRIT.
Adrian Flux, which has over 45 year’s experience arranging specialist and classic car and home insurance has joined the team’s army of supporters, backing its mission to make history at Le Mans and transform the motorsport industry.
The team unveiled the new pride of its fleet, a Mclaren 570S GT4 at an exclusive sponsor event at the Leadenhall Building in London yesterday, home of title sponsor Brit Insurance.
The Adrian Flux branding is prominently displayed on the car, which will be driven by the team’s GT4 drivers Bobby Trundley and Aaron Morgan.
Adrian Flux was a disabled driver himself. He founded the company that bears is name in 1973, after struggling to get insurance for his beloved kit car.
Gerry Bucke, Adrian Flux General Manager said: “We’re massive fans of motorsport and are delighted to be supporting Team BRIT on their historic quest to be the first ever all-disabled team to compete in the Le Mans 24 hour.
“Some of the world’s best drivers compete in Le Mans 24hr and with the addition of the new McLaren and a move to British GT, we believe Team BRIT has every chance of progressing to this top level of world-class racing.
“Adrian Flux were formed when our founder couldn’t get disabled insurance for his kit car in 1973 and this sponsorship takes us back to our roots and shows our commitment, not only to motorsport, but to disabled drivers.”
Team BRIT Founder Dave Player said: “We are incredibly grateful for the support and belief of Adrian Flux, which will make such an impact as we move towards our Le Mans goal.
“Reaching Le Mans is something we will achieve, and we will do this in partnership with the army of supporters who are behind us and who share our brave and ambitious goals of changing motorsport for disabled drivers.
“We’re achieving more and more every year, and unveiling our brand new McLaren today, bearing the Adrian Flux branding, has been a pivotal moment for us. We have now grown our ladder of motorsport opportunity for disabled drivers even further and look forward to welcoming even more people into our incredible sport.”
