The first tickets for the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on December 3-5 have gone on sale this week.

The penultimate race of the 2021 Formula 1 season will take place on the new Jeddah street circuit, which features 27 corners and is the second-longest track in F1 behind Spa. The circuit has been designed with the intention of becoming the fastest street circuit on the F1 calendar.

Race organisers have initially released 40% of tickets, but it is hoped that the race will be able to welcome a full capacity crowd “as the global vaccine response to the pandemic continues to improve”.

Saudi Arabian Minister for Sport, HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki bin Faisal Al Saud said: “We are confident that Jeddah and the magnificent circuit we are constructing will prove to be a wonderful new home for the world’s premier motor racing series.

“It is our aim to deliver a first-class, ground-breaking and unforgettable weekend of sports and entertainment for all fans – whether they are attending or watching from home – to enjoy.

“We are excited to make our debut in a few short months’ time, when we can guarantee drama, high-speeds and excitement when F1 finally arrives in Jeddah.”

HRH Prince Khalid Bin Sultan Al Faisal, Chairman of the Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation added: “Today marks another very important milestone on our road to hosting the first ever F1 race in Saudi Arabia.

“With tickets now officially on sale, we are entering the most exciting phase of the build-up to the pinnacle of motorsport’s arrival in Jeddah in December.

“We can’t wait to welcome the whole world to experience a spectacular race on F1’s newest, fastest and longest street circuit as well as three days of world class off-track entertainment.”
