GB3 partnered by the BRDC racer Reema Juffali has been named as an official ambassador for this weekend’s Formula One STC Saudi Arabia Grand Prix.

Saudi Arabia’s first ever F1 event is taking place in Juffali’s hometown at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, and she is the first female from the kingdom to become a professional racing driver.

The 29-year-old raced with Douglas Motorsport in GB3 this year, claiming a best result of fourth at Silverstone.

She will take part in a number of events throughout the race weekend in her new role, and will be a key contact for the world’s media as she tells the evolving story of motorsport in Saudi Arabia. She will also take part in several promotional and ceremonial activities across the event, and will be one of the first people to drive the track.

Juffali will also drive a legendary Williams FW07 car and then join other professional racers in the Saudi Supercar Club to showcase her driving skills.

Juffali commented: “It is an incredible honour for me to be named as an Official Ambassador for the first-ever Formula 1 race weekend in Saudi Arabia. Growing up in Jeddah, I walked the very same streets which will form the circuit that the world’s best drivers will now race on. It’s hard to over-state what a momentous occasion this is for the city.

“I’m really looking forward to taking part in the activities over the race weekend and I hope that my story and journey can provide some inspiration to anyone thinking of following their dream. I also hope that the arrival of F1 in Saudi Arabia will inspire more of the next generation to pursue a career in the sport and continue our country’s racing evolution.”
