What a year 2017 has been...

As 2017 comes to a close, we celebrate our most exciting, engaging and fun year to date.

A year that saw incredible highs with a visit to the largest collection of MX-5s in the world, spending time with alt-fuel cars including the Toyota Mirai, a Porsche 911 converted to electricity and the world’s first Tesla estate car. We’ve been learning how to Drive like a Rockstar, discovering a Cornish beast, driving the only Porsche 959 Cabrio in the world and joining the True Heroes race team at Snetterton and much more. We’ve also felt devastating lows as True Heroes’ star rider and friend of the team here at Influx and Adrian Flux, Mark Fincham, tragically lost his life.

Through 2017 we’ve increased the number of videos produced, and seen new studios join us. We’ve seen Adrian Flux-backed racing drivers do staggeringly well, as Ash Sutton clinched the BTCC title, and Callum Ilott secured a spot on first rung of the Ferrari F1 ladder through the Ferrari Driver Academy. We’ve celebrated iconic vehicles’ anniversaries including Honda’s Fireblade, and Type-R vehicles, and Fiat’s 500.

It’s been a year which has seen Influx articles and features reach millions of people – the Miataland video alone is cruising towards 500k views on YouTube – and adding a new team of contributors to the existing passionate roster makes Influx as eclectic as we always wanted it to be.

We, the team behind Influx and at Adrian Flux Insurance, eagerly anticipate each new article as much as our hundreds of thousands of newsletter subscribers and social media followers, and are proud to share the year’s highlights with you. Subscribe to Influx here if you like being the first to know about stuff.

Check out our 2017 videos below, plus a gallery of some key images from a fantastic year.

If you’ve enjoyed Influx this year, be sure to visit Adrian Flux and Bikesure too, where you’ll find yet more great information about cars and bikes plus advice on saving money on insurance and much more. And, finally, make sure we see you back here on Influx in 2018 – where we’ll look at yet more Cars, Bikes, People and Culture.
