Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021

Saudi Arabia won't impose special dress code during Grand Prix weekend

The Saudi Arabian government will not be imposing any unique dress code over the course of the Grand Prix weekend, RacingNews365.com understands.

Saudi Arabia's government will not be imposing any particular dress code for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with the country preparing to host its first race at the end of November.

Fans visiting the country for the first race in the Kingdom will not have to adhere to a special dress code, contrary to reports that emerged recently.

RacingNews365.com understands that the photos circulating on social media that appeared to outline a restrictive dress code are not correct, and did not originate from Saudi Arabia's authorities or Grand Prix organisers. Fans attending the race are encouraged to dress as they would for any Grand Prix, but taking into account the cultural sensitivities of Saudi Arabia.

The Ministry of Sports in Saudi Arabia have outlined that there will be no restrictive dress code in place at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, nor at any public places in Jeddah. This applies to all fans, regardless of gender.

Saudi Arabia is aiming to encourage the growth of the tourism industry within its borders, aiming for significant progress by 2030.
