The Jeddah Street Circuit construction process is under control despite the latest rumors.
Why it matters: It has been reported earlier this week that the construction of the Saudi Arabian track is “racing against time”.
- The Saudi Arabian GP CEO Martin Whitaker denies the claims and reveals that they are following the schedule.
- Whitaker confirms the desire to complete the construction in a record time.
What he had to say:
- “The rate of progress on the development of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit as we enter the crucial final period of the track build is very good.”
- “With almost all of the base course Tarmac laid by early September [the photograph above shows building work during August], we are now in the assembly stage of the circuit’s permanent and semi-permanent structures, including the stunning 280-metre long pit and team buildings alongside other buildings including the fan zones and grandstands.”
- “Completing such an undertaking in under nine months is a massive task but with just over two months to go, we are nearing the finish line on completion of the world’s longest, fastest and newest street circuit, built in record time.”
