The OKX Race Club will officially open at 14:00 (GMT+8) on September 14 at ‘The Lawn,’ an open area within CHIJMES, with McLaren F1 Driver Lando Norris joining fans on opening day at 19:20 (GMT+8).

OKX Chief Marketing Officer Haider Rafique said: “OKX Race Club will take over CHIJMES just outside the track and will offer everyone – whether they’re in town for the race or the TOKEN2049 crypto conference – a way to experience the fast-paced worlds of Formula 1 and Web3 together. We look forward to seeing everyone at CHIJMES for what promises to be an unforgettable weekend.”
