OKX to Debut as McLaren Racing’s Primary Partner During Miami Grand Prix

The Seychelles-based cryptocurrency platform OKX has entered into a major multi-year partnership with McLaren Racing, and will become the official primary partner of the McLaren Formula One team and McLaren Shadow esports team from this year.

OKX will be the largest partner to McLaren Racing, the home to one of the most successful Formula One teams and the greatest drivers of all time.

As the world’s second-largest exchange by trading volume, OKX is set to supercharge the experience for McLaren’s global audience, elevating the team and its fans by bringing crypto onto the track.

The partnership will propel the crypto brand to household name status, as with the natural passage of time, will find new opportunities to bring fans closer to the culture of speed, performance and high ambition.

Through the upcoming 2022 Miami Grand Prix, which is due to take place on 8 May 2022, OKX branding will be carried on the rear wing, front wing, mirrors, cockpit side, nose and inner halo of the McLaren MCL36 Formula One cars, on the race suits and helmets of McLaren Formula One drivers Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, and on the McLaren Formula One team kit and McLaren Shadow team kit.
