From October to April, the air is filled with the sound of supercharged engines racing round Reem International Circuit.
Weekend Racing at Reem International Circuit
The main series see Formula Saudi (cars resembling those used in Formula 1), GT Series (Porsche and McLaren), Lotus and Renaults compete in the annual Saudi Racing Festival, held over several rounds.
There is also the opportunity to take your own vehicle and put it through its paces on their Open Track days.
And of course there are the drifting competitions, where the art of the sport can be admired without the added danger of having your car involved in a collision on the road.
There is a grandstand, open to both men and women, so the racing can be enjoyed in comfort, and where visitors can see the Saudia sponsored Williams Formula 1 car that was world champion in the early 1980s.
Reem Karting Circuit - Open to Everyone
Even if you don’t have your own supercar, there is still the opportunity to get some racing in, on the karting track.
Open to the public during weekend afternoons and evenings, this is a fun outing for a group of friends. Men and women are welcome, and get to race 39hp karts at speeds up to 65kph.
Whilst both of the facilities have grandstands, currently there are no refreshment outlets, so make sure to bring your own picnics if you intend staying for a few hours.
