The World’s fastest street circuit
The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is a temporary street circuit located on the Corniche – a 30km coastal resort area of the ancient Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah. Designed by the Tilke company, in conjunction with Formula 1’s own Motorsports team. F1’s Ross Brawn said of the track:
“What we want to see is a race circuit. We don’t want Mickey Mouse circuits. We don’t want those old classic street circuits with 90 degree turns. We want fast sweeping circuits, circuits which are going to challenge the drivers – and they are going to love it.”
With 16 left turns and 11 to the right, the Jeddah Street Circuit has more action-packed corners than any other circuit in the world. It’s just one of the record-breaking design features that'll push the drivers to the limit as they strive to win their place on the podium at the 2022 stc Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in March.
The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is truly a record-breaking track. German track designers Tilke, architects of numerous Formula 1 circuits including Sepang, Bahrain, Shanghai, Istanbul, Valencia, Singapore and many more have pulled out all the stops when designing the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix street circuit in Jeddah.
