One of the drivers from the UK, Oliver Turvey, said that he’s been enjoying the unique culture of Saudi Arabia and is very appreciative that he learned more about the fort’s legacy and history. He also added that he is really looking forward to showing the audience how fast and strong electric cars are.

Other racers also expressed their awe of the track, including Tom Dilmann who as well was anticipating the race and couldn’t wait to show the world the capabilities of electric cars.

Prince Khalid bin Sultan and President of the Saudi Arabian Motor Federation attended the race among a huge crowd and cheered for the participating teams.

One thing worthy of highlighting is that children from King Faisal elementary and Trbiyah Namouthajiyah Schools took part of the race by putting drivers through their paces.

It is fair to say that the event was quite a turn up, from the race itself to the unbelievable performances of the worldwide stars, to simple family activities that included zip lining, a net climbing wall, and a horse corral for the younger kids. Everything was well catered which proves Saudi Arabia’s capability of hosting major events.
