Cars – The CEO of the Saudi Motorsports Company, Martin Whitaker, explained that the Jeddah circuit is being worked on to increase its life. The Jeddah Corniche circuit was designed temporarily in preparation for the construction of a new circuit dedicated to Formula 1 racing in Saudi Arabia. The Jeddah Corniche circuit recently witnessed modifications to it so that it would be able to receive races until 2027.

Whitaker explained that the achievements of the fanfare are intended to extend its lifespan and make it more exciting. It also provides the best viewing for the public in all the world. He pointed out that this circuit provided racing for Formula 1 in Jeddah, while the main work is being done on the main circuit in Qiddiya.

He stressed that the Qiddiya Circuit will be different and pioneering in design and in the entertainment activities it provides. He pointed out that the matter still has time before the establishment of the Qiddiya circuit, and during this period it will be the turn of the Jeddah Corniche circuit to organize Formula 1 races. A new round of Formula 1 races will be organized in Saudi Arabia next March.

At the same time, it is planned to change the Formula 1 race in 2024 in Saudi Arabia. This will be because its date in March conflicts with the next month of Ramadan. It is scheduled to change the date in the coming period and disclose it by the International Automobile Federation.

He mentioned that the changes that took place at the Jeddah Corniche circuit included the turns to improve the drivers’ lines of vision. He stressed the importance of vision when driving at speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. The barriers were moved back in some turns and moved back between 5 and 7 metres. This provides more forward vision for drivers. The slopes of Turns 21, 22 and 23 have also been compressed to reduce speeds between corners 30 and 50 km away.
