Qiddiya is all-set to be home to a speed track

The track will rise 20 stories above the ground…

Saudi Arabia has been making major moves with its megadevelopments all over the country, like Red Sea GlobalNEOM, and more. Most notably, Qiddiya, just launched a ground-breaking new racetrack.

Designed to stage the biggest international motorsport championships, the Qiddiya speed track will be located in the heart of Qiddiya City.

The track will sit at the centre of an area dedicated to motorsports and will feature the sport’s most recognizable track design features.​

Commenting on the launch, Abdullah Aldawood, Managing Director of Qiddiya Investment Company, said, “The Speed Park Track will be a true embodiment of Qiddiya’s power of play philosophy and position Qiddiya City as the home of Saudi motorsport and one of the world’s leading motorsport venues.​”

Designed by Austrian former Formula One driver Alex Wurz and German circuit designer Hermann Tilke, the fast-flowing track has been designed by race drivers, for race drivers, and features 21 corners utilising Qiddiya City’s dramatic landscape to create over 108 metres of elevation gain per lap. ​

The main attraction is the Blade at turn one, an awe-inspiring elevated section of the circuit that dramatically rises more than 20 stories above the ground.​ The turn will also be rising above a music venue below with drivers racing alongside Falcon’s flight, the world’s tallest, fast rollercoaster located at the neighbouring Six Flags Qiddiya City.

The Speed Park Track has multiple configurations with two distinctive sections including a street circuit section and the fast open track section which are fully integrated into Qiddiya’s neighbouring attractions.

Vroom, vroom indeed…
