As Formula 1 looks to expand its horizons across the globe, Jeddah is set to host the very first Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in November. The city is home to 3.5 million people, who will welcome Formula 1 to the shores of the Red Sea.
While the circuit is yet to be confirmed, it will be a unique track around the streets of Jeddah. Organisers promise a variety of long straights flowing into tight corners, and promise a track like no other. It will be designed by Hermann Tilke, who has designed fan favourite like Istanbul Park, Bahrain International, Shanghai International and more.
For fans attending the race, there’s a rich culture to explore with a mix of modern and tradition. The beautiful Al Rahma Mosque is built on reclaimed land surrounded by water and the incredible King Fahd’s Fountain is the tallest in the world, while Al-Balad and Biet Nassif are two vibrant and historic regions of the city. While we don’t know much about the track yet, the city of Jeddah alone promises an unforgettable and unique trip.
