The power of sport
The Saudi Motorsport Company (SMC) is the dedicated commercial and operational entity established to bring the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s motorsport events under a single umbrella as well as being the first public body in Saudi Arabia dedicated to commercializing motorsport at a national level.
SMC is responsible for hosting and promoting all motorsport events in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company works alongside its parent company the Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation and colleagues at the Ministry of Sport.
Aside from Formula 1, these include the world-famous Dakar Rally, the first electric off-road motorsport championship, and Extreme E all of which will return in 2023.
New international events are being added to the Saudi motorsport calendar and in November 2022 (26th-27th), the FIA WTCR series, the world’s premier touring car championship, makes its debut at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit on the circuit’s newly homologate short-circuit.
Furthermore, the MoS recently announced it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dorna Sports, confirming the shared intention to host MotoGP, the world’s premier motorcycle racing series, in the Kingdom in the near future.
These recurring major motorsports events are delivering directly against the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 with each committed to long-term deals that have helped Saudi Arabia to develop an unrivalled portfolio that is not replicated anywhere else in the world.
SAUDI ARABIA.. THE FUTURE OF MOTORSPORT
It is essential that we focus our efforts on taking advantage of this incredible opportunity for the Kingdom via the establishment of the Saudi Motorsport Company. The establishment of SMC will allow us to focus our efforts on the consolidation and expansion of motorsport in the country and to maximize the many opportunities hosting these major events offer the people of Saudi Arabia.
