Saudia, for the first time, is sponsoring the season opening race for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship that will be held, also for the first time, in the historic city of Ad Diriyah, located on the outskirts of Riyadh, from December 13-15.
The cars, spares and the various equipment were carried from several European destinations into King Khalid Airport in Riyadh.
In total there were 58 cars transported aboard several aircraft, with a combined load exceeding 220 tons. This also includes cars for the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (pictured).
Formula E, is a class of racing that uses only electric-powered cars. Inspired by innovation, this race utilises eco-friendly electric energy.
