12 years of minidrivers
Time flies… 12 years ago MiniDrivers started as a project to have fun and bring another point of view of Formula 1, a project that I thought that wouldn’t go so far is now getting bigger every time, and all thanks to all the fans.
Probably this year is even more important than the 10th anniversary and I have a special reason for it… This year I broke the barrier of the 100k Youtube subscribers and I couldn’t be happier because of that. Thanks to everyone for making this possible.
The evolution that the series had during all this time is extraordinary and I can’t believe how it improved when I started in 2008… But staying in one point is not enough to me, and I always want to improve… so I have to bring you every year something new, something different, and this time I think I found something really cool for the fans.
First of all, as every year, it’s open the section to select the races for the 5th season of MiniVintage, the F1 and MotoGP races from 2000 to 2009 by going to THIS LINK. The selection will be closed on December 1st, but this time you have to think really good because… This will be the last season of MiniVintage, but there is a reason behind that.
As you have seen on the celebration image, there is someone new at the image, a new character which is called MiniDummy, and will probably become one of the most funniest characters because it will be the main character of a new series that will be released in 2021 called MiniFactory. I can’t say so many things about it yet, but those who are Patrons or Youtube Members will be able to watch it today with the first chapter of this new series.
Also as a way to celebrate this anniversary, I wanted to bring you something new. I created two Instagrams effects that you can try by your own. The first one is the classic one of “Which character are you?” where you can see which of the main characters of the series are you… Who knows… Maybe you’re Dark Mini and you don’t know it yet…
The other effect is a very special one, is called “Be different, be Mini” and with this effect you can become the real MiniDriver by using the camera of your phone to turn your head into the head of one of my characters.
As you can see, there are a few things that are coming with the anniversary, but this is not all… There is an idea for another series, but it will depend on the numbers that I can get with the MiniFactory that will decide if I will do it or not, but for now, it’s time to focus in F1, MotoGP, ABB Formula E and the classic races, but I can promise you, that this is only the beginning of something bigger.
Thanks to everyone who are supporting the series, who are sharing the chapters, and special thanks to all the Patrons and Youtube Members who are supporting the channel. You are a big part of this family and I’m honored to can count to all of you.
