URC Chairman HRH Prince Faisal Bin Saud Bin AbdulMohsen said Prince Nawaf visit to Jeddah Raceway demonstrates the attention he pays to sports and youth. He pointed out that the establishment of the Jeddah Raceway was a natural response to promoting the increasing passion for motor sports among Saudi youth, adding that he hoped the project would also further encourage Saudi youth to pursue their racing skills in a safer, controlled environment, without jeopardizing road safety.
"The support of HRH Prince Sultan Bin Fahad, Presedent of Youth Welfare, and his Deputy HRH Prince Nawaf Bin Faisal Bin Fahad has greatly motivated us to make this major project a reality and to take Saudi Motor sports to International arenas," Prince Faisal pointed out.
URC Vice-Chairman and Executive Director, Mishael Bin AbdulMohsen Bin AbdulRahman Al-Sulaiman, said Jeddah Raceway will be home to some of the best sporting action through a regular calendar of racing activities. It will also enable sports enthusiasts to enjoy a ringside view of the spectacular motor sports experiences.
He added, the raceway, located in north Jeddah, east off Medina Road, covers an area of 250,000 square meters, and will consist at its first phase of an international standard quarter mile drag racing strip, stands that can accommodate up to 15,000 spectators and a landmark control tower besides important amenities such as restaurants, car accessories shops, workshops, car inspection facilities, and separate sections for contestants, management, sponsors and media personnel.
