Saudi Arabia has played host to a variety of motorsport events, including Formula E and Dakar Rally. Today motorsport is the second most popular sport in Saudi Arabia and that makes its debut in the Formula 1 calendar in 2021 all the more exciting. The inaugural edition of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix sees the race being held in the nation's second biggest city - Jeddah.
The race was initially planned to be held in a motorsports complex in the city of Qiddiya, which was conceived by a consultancy headed by former Formula 1 driver Alexander Wurz. This circuit was meant to have the capacity of hosting all FIA categories through to Formula 1. However, it was later announced in November 2020 that the inaugural race would take place in Jeddah, in collaboration with the Saudi Automobile and Motorcycle Federation. This picturesque city is situated on the Red Sea coast and this is one of the few races in the calendar that is set to take place at night.
Joining other street circuits like Monaco and Singapore, the race in Jeddah will run on a street track that is situated on the Corniche. This is a coastal resort area of the city, and with the track hugging the seafront, you can expect a spectacular backdrop in the midst of exhilarating track action. The track layout features a good flow of speedy straights and tight corners, so you are guaranteed an impressive display of skills as the drivers navigate varying techniques to edge ahead of their competition. No matter the area you´re seated at, you can be sure of gripping track action. Without any equivalent track on the calendar, being a part of this race will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat as you witness a race that is like no other.
