Car racing is one of the most popular sports globally, with a multi-billion dollar dedicated to this adrenaline-pumping sport. Every year, amateurs and professionals compete in different variations of the sport from Grand Prix racing, speedway racing, stock-car racing, sports-car racing, drag racing, midget car racing, karting, and many more. As a result, some brilliant creators are now set to launch an innovative NFT token, Driver Ape Racing Club (DARC), a digital artwork that provides a community for car race lovers and crypto enthusiasts with access to prestigious car races.
Driver Ape Racing Club (DARC) is an avant-garde NFT project featuring a unique collection of 7,777 alien apes acclaimed for their speed and superiority on the race tracks. These extraterrestrial apes are not your average primates; they come from a distant planet a few light-years from Earth. On this planet aptly named “Silver Lightning,” the apes live a blissfully advanced lifestyle where they harness the lightning for energy and health. They are renowned for their fantastic car races, festivals, and large population with their advanced technology.
However, the planet is now faced with a devastating energy crisis affecting its ecosystem and the health of its inhabitants. To resolve this crisis, a team of 7,777 apes, the last group to receive the lightning bolt’s energy, must travel to Earth on a secret mission to compete in car races and harness the planet’s lightning bolt to resolve the energy crisis on their home planet. This group formed the Driver Ape Racing Club (DARC).
Although DARC is based on a fictional story, the NFT token inspired by the clothing brand Bape and the movie saga Planet of the Apes has real utility in the metaverse and physical world. The tokens are randomly generated to ensure their uniqueness and designed as living art images on the Solana Blockchain. The collection is yet to be launched, and the developers behind the token have revealed some of their innovative plans. According to them, 200 golden helmets will be released every year for collectors to seek and find on a treasure hunt. Some of the perks of collecting the NFT token includes winning a custom helmet, participating in the first karting tournament, joining an exclusive community of car race enthusiasts, and enjoying an entire weekend at the DARC Karting tournament, which will take place in one of the five largest go-karting circuits in the world.
Creators of the NFT aim to deploy a price valuation strategy to protect holders’ investment and help it become highly profitable during and after a purchase. Additionally, once 20,000 people have minted the token, collectors may receive VIP access and a right to join the official pre-sale on a date that will be later communicated. To cement its place in the digital space, Driver Ape Racing Club has partnered with Helmand GmbH in Germany, designing durable helmets for car competitions. The company also looks to partner with ten of the most prominent car groups and influencers worldwide.
