More than 125 bitcoin fanatics are gathering at Silverstone Circuit on October 16 to enjoy a never-before-seen spectacle at the 72-year-old track, as three bitcoin cars race around the historic circuit in the final races of the season. As well as enjoying this high-octane bitcoin-themed thrill, guests will enjoy the opportunity to try Salvadoran Pupusas, race a bitcoin car in a cutting-edge racing simulator and hear conference-style speeches from prominent UK bitcoiners.
The Bitcoin Racing team made all guests wear Bitcoin merchandise so that Bitcoin would have a large presence on the track on the big day.

Based on some back-of-the-envelope calculations, we estimate that over 70,000 people will see our cars on UK roads alone!”
