Saudi Arabia's new Jeddah Street Circuit is nearing completion, two weeks ahead of the inaugural race being held in the Kingdom.

Construction of the facility began in April 2021 and, after just six months of working at breakneck speed, the circuit will be ready in advance of the race.

By completing the track in half a year, a new record has been set as no F1 circuit has ever been constructed in such a short space of time.

Set to stage racing under floodlights, the spectacularly fast circuit sweeps through scenic views on the coastline of Jeddah's Corniche area on the Red Sea.

Led by renowned F1 circuit architects Tilke GMbH and F1's own Motorsports Division, the circuit is designed specifically to induce close racing thanks to multiple DRS zones.

It will also be the circuit with the highest number of corners on the calendar, with 27 in total, including a long 12-degree banked left-hand high-speed hairpin.

The inaugural Saudi Arabian GP is scheduled for 3-5 December.
