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.

"Whilst Riyadh is the place to be for work, it is only when people get out to the more provincial and desert areas that they will see Saudi Arabia in its true splendour. Most people who arrive for the first time have no idea of the variety of life in the kingdom."
