The world’s largest Lego car is being built in Jeddah, and everyone can participate in the process of constructing it.

The project is being organised by the Saudi Automobile and Motorcycle Federation (SAMF), the official promoters of the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which will take place in Jeddah this December. The project will raise money for Ehsan, the national charity platform that supports everything from environmental issues to health care, education and much more.

Assembly of the 500,000-brick car starts today (September 15) and will take a week to complete, wrapping up on Saudi National Day. Officials from the Guinness World Records will be verifying the attempt upon its completion.

The construction is taking place at Jeddah’s Red Sea Mall, and the first brick will be placed by Prince Saud bin Abdullah bin Jalawi, adviser to Makkah governor and Jeddah acting governor, and Prince Khalid bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal, chairman of the SAMF.

The site will also feature a display board that shows a live percentage of the car’s completion status. Additional boards will have information about the history of F1 races, interviews of F1 drivers, and other exciting race content.

Everyone is invited to participate by purchasing a brick online, with all of the proceeds going to Ehsan. In addition, all participants will have their names displayed on a screen near the car.

The record-breaking activity will take place less than three months before the Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix finally makes its debut in Jeddah on December 3-5.
