BitcoinRacing Accelerates into the JCW MINI Challenge for Debut Season in 2024

BitcoinRacing is thrilled to announce its debut in the JCW MINI Challenge, with driver Chris Mackenzie confirmed as lead driver. This exciting venture marks a significant milestone for the team as they dive into the world of high-speed racing and level up from three years in club level championship, the City Car Cup.

The JCW MINI Challenge is known for its thrilling races, attracting massive audiences eager to witness intense competition and drivers showcasing their skills in hopes of advancing to the British Touring Car Championship. Last season, the series garnered over 16 million viewers through prime-time TV coverage on ITV4 and drew 400,000 spectators to live races across various UK circuits.

Team Principal Charlie Mackenzie is enthusiastic about this new endeavor, recognising its potential to introduce Bitcoin to a broader audience. "We're excited to join the MINI Challenge, providing us with a platform to connect with motorsport fans and introduce them to the world of Bitcoin," said Mackenzie. "Our aim is not only to entertain but also to educate, presenting Bitcoin in an engaging and approachable manner."

With an audience of nearly 17 million to captivate, BitcoinRacing aims to redefine the perception of Bitcoin by seamlessly integrating it with the dynamic and positive attributes of motorsport. This strategy serves to divert attention away from the misinformation and negative narratives perpetuated by mainstream media channels.

The JCW MINI Challenge features 275bhp touring cars designed for intense racing, capable of reaching speeds of up to 150mph. Equipped with a Damico tuned 2-liter engine, Quaife sequential gearbox, three-way adjustable Nitron dampers, and Alcon brakes, BitcoinRacing is set to deliver a powerful message as the fastest Bitcoin advertisement in the UK. In fact, the engine is so powerful that a bitcoiner on X worked out that it could mine 1 bitcoin every 49 days!

Driver Chris Mackenzie is eager for the challenge ahead. "Moving up to the JCW class is a significant step for both myself and the team, especially given the fact we have only raced at low club level" remarked Mackenzie. "But I'm ready to seize this opportunity, refine my skills, and compete in such a prestigious series. My goal is to achieve great results and to make my family, sponsors, and the entire Bitcoin community proud."
