The Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation (SAMF) - Promoter of the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix – has launched ticket sales for the Kingdom’s inaugural Formula 1 race weekend, taking place on the new Jeddah Corniche Circuit December 3-5.
With the ongoing Covid pandemic in mind, the host of Saudi Arabia’s first ever F1 Grand Prix will initially be releasing 40% of available tickets, with a view to increasing this to full capacity over the coming weeks and months as the global vaccine response to the epidemic continues to improve. At all times, the main priority of the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will continue to be the health and safety of all fans, staff, stakeholders & participants, and any and all decisions relating to a further capacity increase will be taken with this in mind.
The 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is currently offering fans a choice of three different, 3-day ticket types: Paddock Club, Premium Hospitality & Grandstand, with prices starting at SR1800 ($480) for Grandstand packages.
Grandstand tickets are currently for the Main and Southern Grandstands and will allow F1 fans to take their seats in comfort while being treated to some fantastic views of the start/finish lane, as well as the hyper-fast final section of the track at Turns 26/27 where speeds are expected to reach 322km/h before cars will enter the widest section of the track for a perfect overtaking opportunity into the home.
Hospitality tickets are the premium ticket type issued by the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, offering guests the most luxurious and glamorous experience possible. Not only will you be provided with the best views of the racing action on the stunning Jeddah Corniche Circuit but your hospitality ticket will also function as a great networking, client entertainment and B2B opportunity for you and your organisation given the high level of business guests that will be present.
F1 fans can also choose to visit the legendary F1 Paddock Club to enjoy the race weekend in style in the Jeddah Corniche Circuit’s state-of-the-art Pit & Team Building overlooking the magnificent Red Sea coastline. No other sports hospitality event has the luxury of a whole weekend like Paddock Club, so there's more than enough time to enjoy all the F1 experiences on offer here. On one side you can look down into the Paddock where drivers, celebrities and F1 legends will mingle. On the other, you will look down onto the pit lane and the starting grid with a breathtaking view of the Jeddah waterfront on the horizon.
In addition to the F1 racing itself, all ticket holders will also be able to enjoy watching the all-action Formula 2 support series as well as participate in and witness the many entertainment activities, fan festivals and live concerts that will be taking place across the circuit and F1 Fanzone all weekend.
In keeping with the ultramodern circuit being developed to host the first ever F1 race weekend in the Kingdom, the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix also revealed its inspirational Overtake The Future race identity today to accompany its ticket launch. Designed to showcase the power of the fusion between the pinnacle of motorsport and Saudi Arabia’s illustrious culture, heritage and hospitality, which together will help to shape a new and exciting tomorrow for all Saudis, Overtake The Future feeds directly into the Saudi government’s transformative Vision 2030 initiative, whose aim is to maximise the country’s vast human potential to create a better future for the whole Kingdom.
The Saudi Arabian Minister for Sport, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki bin Faisal Al Saud commented: “It is a source of enormous pride to announce the launch of ticket sales for the inaugural Formula 1 race weekend in Saudi Arabia this coming December. We are confident that Jeddah and the magnificent circuit we are constructing will prove to be a wonderful new home for the world’s premier motor racing series.
